The package RVSAO defined in this directory was developed by Doug Mink at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics from the redshift package originally written by Gerard Kriss at Johns Hopkins University and modified significantly by Steve Levine at the University of Wisconsin. It obtains radial velocities and velocity dispersions using cross-correlation methods or emission line fits. It consists of five tasks: XCSAO, EMSAO, BCVCORR, SUMSPEC, and LINESPEC. If you have any problems, please contact Doug Mink, mink@cfa.harvard.edu. This package has not been tested on a VMS system. A task, RELEARN, has been provided to aid in updating parameters. Run it instead of UNLEARN to keep your current parameters settings while adding new parameters.

After the Revision Notes, you will find installation instructions.

A fairly complete description of this package has been published in the August 1998 issue of the Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific. For further updates, see http://tdc-www.harvard.edu/iraf/rvsao/
