Specx is a general purpose astronomical spectral-line data analysis program. It was
originally written for reduction of data from the mm-wave receivers built for
UKIRT by a consortium including MRAO, QMW, UKC and RAL, and since then primarily
for data from the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope. However, it has evolved for
analysis of data from many different observatories.
- Specx 6.3
- This was the first version of SPECX with a proper command language. V6.3 was
written under VMS; V6.4-6.7 were ported to Unix by Horst Meyerdierks, with
help from Remo Tilanus and myself. This is still the current version at JCMT.
The manual is available for download.
Specx V7.0 is a new release, and is currently available only for Windows
(98/Me/NT4/2000/XP). V7.0 is written mainly using Digital Fortran, first on
Alpha-VMS and more recently on Windows. The Windows compiler is Digital Visual
Fortran (now Compaq Visual Fortran, although recently sold to Intel...), running
in Microsoft Visual Studio.
