Abstract: The generation of simulated sources whose physical properties are well understood is useful in assessing the functionality of point source analysis software. Qpsim is an IRAF/PROS task which will generate events from sources of given intensity, shape, and position and either overlay them on a flat background in a new QPOE file or inject them into an existing QPOE file. We present an overview of the capabilities of qpsim and some examples of its use.
