Source code for batse5bp.ascii64

Objects providing access to 64 ms count data as compiled in the ASCII data
files at the COSSC.

These files compile DISCLA, PREB, and DISCSC data over an interval determined by
examination of trigger and pre-trigger data by the BATSE team.

NOTE:  The DISCLA data is in 1024 ms bins; the counts are divided by 16 to
distribute across the tabulated 64 ms bins.  The DISCLA bins can overlap with
the 1st PREB bin, in which case the PREB overlap is subtracted and the remaining
counts divided among earlier bins.
