ifeffit(1) an interactive program for XAFS analysis


ifeffit [options] files...


This manual page documents briefly the ifeffit command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the GNU Info format; see below.

ifeffit is an interactive program for XAFS analysis. It combines the high-quality analysis algorithms of AUTOBK and FEFFIT with graphical display of XAFS data and general data manipulation.

 comes as a command-line program, but the underlying functionality is available as a programming library. The IFEFFIT library can be used from C, Fortran, Tcl, Perl, and Python. This allows a variety of user interfaces (both graphical and non-graphical) to be written around IFEFFIT. Currently, two graphical user interfaces: one called G.I.FEFFIT, and one called ATHENA are built on the underlying IFEFFIT library. IFEFFIT and both GUIs are under active development, but are fairly well tested and ready for use.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the Info files.
