This software package provides independent binary programs (so called tasks)
which performs various steps of astronomical image reduction and  data
processing. These tasks are designed for execution from a UNIX command line
shell or shell script. Each of these tasks performs a specific operation
(e.g. transforming an image to another reference frame, search and identifiy
stars or other point-like sources, do photometry, transform/display a
FITS image to a popular graphics format, ...) while the details of a
certain operation are specified via command switches and arguments.
Therefore this package does not need any higher level operating environment
than a standard UNIX shell, however, processing the related data might
require a little more knowledge of the used shell itself. If you find this
program useful in your research, please cite 2012MNRAS.421.1825P
as "2012, MNRAS, 421, 1825". See also the web page of the project, found at That page gathers information about the program
(including documentation and examples), this is the primary download source
of the package itself, and additionally, serves a public forum for the
program users in various topics. Bug reports, comments and ideas are welcomed!
