Abstract : A program is described which processes and plots data accumulated by an anticoincidence-shielded scintillation spectrometer. This program is similar to that described in AD-611 198, except that an error in some statistical uncertainty calculations has been corrected, provision has been made for the subtraction of a common background spectrum from a number of input spectra submitted at one time but as separate problems, and spectra are all plotted with a common energy scale to permit the accumulation of a library of easily usable standard spectra. Also, the plotting routine has been changed so that for each energy channel the number of counts and the uncertainty thereof are represented by a datum point and uncertainty bar rather than by three data points. Provision has also been made for automatic labeling of all graphs and for labeling of the vertical axes. (Author)
