Abstract: Sherpa is the fitting and modeling tool of the Chandra Interactive Analysis of Observations (CIAO) package. It is designed to allow users to fit the 1D (e.g., spectra, luminosity functions) and 2D datasets (e.g., images) obtained from the Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes. The S-Lang programming language has been embedded into CIAO, which allows users the ability to access numerical data calculated by Sherpa. We present two examples of how S-Lang has been used to enhance and extend Sherpa's capabilities.
