Paper Abstract

The Chandra Data Model (CDM) library was developed to support data analysis for the Chandra X-ray Observatory, one of NASA's orbiting Great Observatories. The library and its associated tools are designed to be multi-mission and can be used to manipulate a wide variety of astronomical data. Much of the library's power comes from its use of virtual files, which provide a flexible command-line user interface.
