Abstract: XIMAGE is a portable X-ray image analysis and simulation package that supports the analysis of EXOSAT, Einstein and ROSAT data. Other X-ray imaging detectors can be supported provided that the proper calibration files are available. The graphic capabilities of XIMAGE are based on PGPLOT which supports most graphic terminals, and on SAOIMAGE which runs on X-Window. XIMAGE supports several data analysis tasks including a slide-cell detect and the simulation of data from present and future detectors. XIMAGE can be run as a standalone program or within the EXOSAT Database System (EXOSAT Observatory team 1991a,b) or from the ESIS Correlation Environment Prototype (Giommi et al. 1992). The XIMAGE code is written in FORTRAN77, runs on VAX/VMS and SUN/UNIX machines and is available on request at no cost.
