Feature article Practical uses of SPFIT

Drouin, B. (2017), Feature article Practical uses of SPFIT, Journal of Molecular Spectroscopy, 340, 1-15, doi:10.1016/j.jms.2017.07.009.

Over twenty-five years ago, Herb Pickett introduced his quantum-mechanical fitting programs to the spectroscopic community. The utility and flexibility of the software has enabled a whole generation of spectroscopists to analyze both simple and complex spectra without having to write and compile their own code. Last year Stewart Novick provided a primer for the coming generation of users. This followon work will serve as a guide to intermediate and advanced usage of the software. It is meant to be used in concert with the online documentation as well as the spectral line catalog archive.
