xselect failing to find event files

xselect gives a really misleading message when the event file cannot be found :
The input file is neither a FITS file nor an ASCII file
containing a list of FITS files
I've improved this to make it clear that the file is not being found.

Dear Keith,

I couldnt find your email address, so sorry that i bug you on your blog in this manner.

I am doing some analysis on swift XRT data. I have encountered the
pileup problem. I was wondering weather there is some function in
xselect that can correct for this.

thank you,
peter
