[Ifeffit] Opening XANES Files with Athena

Where was the XANES data collected?  Unless the write format is really 
unique, I would suspect that you could just open the raw data in Athena 
without much trouble even if the data file extension is txt.  The 
developer has made Athena pretty flexible for data import.  Those 
extensions are for project files coming from Athena (prj) and Artemis 
(apj) not just the raw data you have.  iXAFS has worked for a number of 
people on the list, myself included.  Give it a try.

buena salud,
