These pages contain information on how to do data extraction for current X-ray missions with the data extraction scripts available on the Unix machines of the Astronomy and Astrophysics group. These scripts have been written to a large extent by Jörn Wilms, with the help of numerous students at the Institut für Astronomie und Astrophysik der Universität Tübingen as well as people at CASS, UC San Diego, and at Chandra X-ray Center, MIT, Cambridge, MA.

The scripts are available upon request by emailing Jörn Wilms.
