Sorry, I'm new at ROS. Please describe the functionality of the filter. I could not find any documentation doing so. If you could direct me to some links,it would be very helpful.

From laser_footprint_filter.cpp it looks like it subscribes to a LaserScan and takes a parameter footprint_inscribed_radius then republishes the LaserScan with all scan points inside of the radius excluded (the points are still there but are going to get ignored by other nodes because they are made to be beyond the range_max?).
