Ken Sidorowicz advises that there are export control requirements that must be fulfilled before this software is posted. He says that Roger Dejus is aware of these requirements.

Also, there is mention of a 2.4 release on the ESRF web site but the download URL points to 2.3 at the location above.

With significant help from Roger Dejus, I installed XOP v2.4 for 64-bit Linux onto /APSshare. It should be available from the sector DSERV computers by about 6 AM tomorrow. Roger made it _very_ easy!

executable: /APSshare/bin/xop

This is a soft link to /APSshare/xop/xop/xop


note the soft link /APSshare/xop/xop -> xop2.4

There is a /APSshare/xop/HISTORY (a text file) where any update history will be logged.

Please try it out and let me know how it works for you. I was able to plot 1-D data from a SPEC file using it as well as discover information about the element Fe.
