In particular, PyRAF is a tool for analyzing spectra. Aside from its documentation there are few online resources about it, and no question and answer sites for it. Can the Astronomy Stack Exchange fill that gap?
The proposed question: After installing PyRAF with
$pip install stsci.distutils and
$pip install stscipython
I try to run it with
$pyraf or, in python,
>>> import pyraf. Both actions give a
segmentation fault: 11
How can I install the software so that it will run properly?
