I have nothing against that (it's my month of work that goes down the
drain, but hey, that's life). It would be nice to have something better
that is easy to maintain and build upon. I mean python. What should be
done in that case is to build all programs as a libray, i.e., move all
"real" code out of the main functions into subroutines. For the analysis
programs this should be rather straight forward. Then we can build a
python layer around it, with Python/Tk interface.\

Any volunteers? 

Groeten, David.
