We have collected together many of the astronomical applications developed as Iraf tasks at the Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility (ST-ECF) into an Iraf layered
package called "stecf". This package contains several subpackages. One contains a variety of image restoration algorithms including multiple channel and photometric variants of the
Richardson Lucy method. In addition a wholly new package ("impol") for the reduction of polarimetric imaging from HST (and ground-based instruments) is made available for the first
time. Software for the post-pipeline processing of HST NICMOS data, with particular emphasis on the association and pre-processing of images to be used for grism spectral
extraction, and finally a general purpose grism spectral extraction tool are also included.
