Contributed IRAF Software

The majority of software written for IRAF has been written outside of the core IRAF system. Much of this software comes from the major projects like STSDAS, PROS, EUVE, FTOOLS, etc., however the /contrib directory of our anonymous ftp archive is available for all users who wish to distribute their IRAF-related code or otherwise publicize a package or task they wish to make available. Small programs or scripts can also be submitted to the adass.iraf.sources newsgroup. This is also where we distribute precompiled binaries for various external packages not developed at NOAO by the IRAF group. We suggest that any contributed software include a "readme" file explaining what it is, how to install it, and whom to contact for problems or updates.

We would like to offer this page as a link to any IRAF software developed by users, as well as provide a comprehensive listing of what's currently available.

Astro-IRAF-CL-0.1.2.readme
Astro-IRAF-CL-0.1.2.tar.gz
Perl module that provides an object-orientated interface to the IRAF CL interactive session, it is built on top of the Perl Expect module. You can script almost anything through this module that you can do in a normal interactive CL session. From Stephen Quinney, (irafperl@jadevine.org.uk) (Updated 08/13/2002)

gemini.readme

gemini_v14.tar.gz
The Gemini IRAF package is used at the Gemini telescopes for the purpose of assessing the data obtained. It is also planned that tasks in the Gemini IRAF package can be incorporated in an observing program using the Observing Tool. Further, the Gemini IRAF package may be used for pipeline reduction of the data. The Gemini IRAF package is currently under construction. See the package homepage for further details.

stecf-v1.0.readme
This package contains several subpackages. One contains image restoration related tasks including a multiple channel and photometric variant of the Richardson Lucy method (cplucy). Another includes a revised version of the Drizzle image combination engine (v1.41) and a few supporting tasks. In addition a wholly new package ("impol") for the reduction of polarimetric imaging from HST (and ground-based instruments) is made available for the first time. Software for the post-pipeline processing of HST NICMOS data, with particular emphasis on the association and pre-processing of images to be used for grism spectral extraction, and finally a general purpose grism spectral extraction tool ("slitless") are also included.
