QSOFit: General-purpose IDL code for quasar spectral fits

Shen, Yue

This is the IDL version of QSOFIT.

You need to have IDLUTILS installed (http://www.sdss3.org/dr8/software/idlutils.php).

If you wish to use the SFD dust maps for Galactic reddening correction, you need to download them separately.

A python version (similar but not identical) is at Guo et al. (2018), http://ascl.net/1809.008

If you use FeII templates in the fits, please remember to give credit to the original papers, as cited in the main paper.

Use this code at your own risk, as I am not responsible for any errors. But if you report bugs, it will be greatly appreciated.

The code is very easy to understand. Feel free to modify it for your needs. But I won't have time to document the code further, or troubleshoot any problem. You are bascially on your own.
 

Version 1.0.1 adds the dependency function, "balmer_conti.pro"
