how to get the "areascale" value

I'm working with XMM RGS spectra, which have an "AREASCALE"
column in their spectral files.

I'm trying to find the number of counts per bin.

To this end, I read in the data with "load_data()" and
run "s = get_data_counts()" to find the counts per bin from the resulting
s.value field.

However, s.value are floats, not integer values, hence they are not counts.
It seems that, per bin "i", s.value[i] == counts[i] / areascale[i] ?

If that is the case, how can I find the areascale[i] values (something
equivalent to "get_data_backscale"), so I can then multiply s.value[i]
to get the counts in bin i?
