I apologize in advance for repeating myself here, but it really pains me to
see people still using the very out-of-date ifeffit backend.

Larch's XAS Viewer can read the files posted just fine (well, 50 unlabelled
columns is never "fine" -- you really should complain to the folks
generating these files).  It does prompt to convert energies in keV to eV,
and it doesn't lose any data points doing so.  Among other features, it can
read and write Athena project files.  It may not do everything Athena does,
but it does most things, and a few things Athena does not.
