WinXAS is a new X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) data-analysis program. It runs under the operating system MS-Windows 95/NT and offers several unique features. It has a user-friendly graphical environment and is capable of reading a variety of data formats. It contains a number of useful numerical algorithms beyond those used in conventional XAS analysis and offers a simple interface to the ab-initio theoretical code FEFF. The availability of fast macros in WinXAS makes it particularly useful for on-line data examination at synchrotron radiation facilities during XAS experiments as well as for the analysis of multiple-scan data such as those from time-resolved experiments.
