Abstract : A new computer code is described that analyzes data obtained from spectroscopic measurements of chemiluminescent emission. Primary input to the code is digitized spectrometer signal data of the vibrational-rotational emission spectra of HCl, HF or DF molecules. The code computes the rotational temperature, vibrational number densities, and line-by-line gains of the excited species. This report presents the theoretical basis and numerical formulation for the code, and operational procedures for its use. A sample case is included. (Author)
