J. McDowell presented ASC plans for analysis software including generalization to be compatible with existing systems and to handle spectroscopic data. The Users' Committee stressed that compatibility was the most important aspect of the development. Since the more general a code is, the more likely it is to be misused, it was suggested that software incorporate a warning message if the use was potentially inappropriate. It was also suggested that the ASC consider having software workshops.
