Abstract: An interactive IRAF task for the analysis of Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) emission line spectra is presented. The line flux in extracted spectra may be measured by multiple techniques, including fitting individual lines. Blended lines may be fit simultaneously with the EUVE spectral PSF\@. To aid in identifying lines, the positions of known lines may be marked on the spectrum during the fitting process. Also, model EUVE spectra may be constructed and overlaid using plasma emissivities and source emission measures supplied by the user. The task is fully compatible with the calibration data set distributed by the EUVE Guest Observer (GO) Center and retrieves all needed instrumental parameters from that data set. It also makes use of the newly available IRAF support for windowing graphical user interfaces.
