Should you publish any papers using pamela I would appreciate an acknowledgement.
pamela is a package of routines for the reduction of 2D spectrum data to 1D. It does not deal with any subsequent steps such as arc calibration etc. pamela includes full propagation of uncertainties through the reduction. It implements 2 forms of optimal extraction which are Keith Horne's original method for reasonably straight spectra and my revised version for spectra with significant tilts or curvature.
pamela now runs over NDF and uses the ADAM parameter system.
To get pamela running, source the script . You may want to define an alias for this if you use pamela frequently.
