I cannot speak to what is better or worse than Feff or MXAN, but there
are certainly other things out there.  I suppose that one's milage
would vary from system to system.

My memory is that Yves Joly's FDMNES codes is available for the
asking, but the last time I looked at it (many years ago by now) I was
unable to get it compiled on my linux machine.

It is possible that Delphine Cabaret's pseudopotential approach may be
available for outside use as well, but I do not know for sure -- it's
been a while since I last spoke with her.

The folks associated with Rostov have codes for computing XANES
spectra.  I believe Victor Kraizman reads this list and may be able to
