pyxcom is a pythonic GUI (Graphical User Inetrface) and TUI (Text User Interface) to the NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technologies) program XCOM.
pyxcom allows to calculate seemlessly the X-ray cross sections and attenuation factors of many materials.
Several times it happened to me to use XCOM data in scripts. Unfortunately XCOM is an interactive program, so I had to found workarounds to comfortably access its results in scripts. After some coding I found I had a small Python library that, once reorganized, resulted in a TUI for XCOM.
Then I started adding features to this program, in particular I added an experimental wxPython interface and I released it to the pubblic domain under the name of pyxcom, hoping that some other people could take advantage of my work as I did with the one made by the Open Source community.
· GTK+ version 2.8.x
What's New in This Release:
· Pyxcom is a textual and graphical front end to the NIST software XCOM.
· With Pyxcom you can easily obtain cross section of X-rays and gamma-rays.
· A wxPython interface is provided.
