Abstract
A UNIX-based computer workstation for spectroscopic data reduction is described. A Heurikon Corp. HK-68 microcomputer (with Motorola 68000 CPU and UNIX operting system) accepts data downloaded from five spectrometer systems. Various hardware and software devices are used to optimize the downloading of data to the multi-user UNIX system. Software tools, written in Fortran 77, include: 1) screen interactive routines for Fourier smoothing, Fourier derivatives, Fourier self-deconvolution; 2) mathematical manipulation and plotting of spectra and of measurable spectroscopic parameters (e.g., peak position, halfwidth, intensity); 3) methods of displaying series of spectra. UNIX system features like shell script, shell variables, I/O redirection, and background processing are fully utilized to enhance the power and flexibility for the programs used in data reduction.
