XOP (X-ray Oriented Programs) is a graphical user interface to run computer
programs that calculate basic information needed by synchrotron radiation
beamline scientists and engineers. It can also be used as a front end for
specific codes or packages for data analysis and data reduction.
XOP contains a customized database for optical and atomic constants (DABAX).
It has a flexible design and new applications may be added.
