"The Image Reduction and Analysis Facility (IRAF) was developed by the National Optical Astronomical Observatory (Kitt Peak), and has been adopted by the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore as the principal data analysis environment for Hubble Space Telescope (HST) data. (This data can also be reduced by KAPPA and FIGARO.) It contains general image processing and graphics applications, plus programs for reducing and analysing optical astronomical data. It is as portable and device independent as possible; for example, it includes its own programming language. Although it runs on a variety of computers, in practice it usually runs best on one particular type (Suns at present). "
