Abstract: NEMO is a toolbox for users and programmers with which a wide range of experimental situations can be constructed, dynamically evolved, and analyzed. Primarily geared towards stellar dynamics, NEMO is by no means restricted to it. Great importance has been given to making the package extendible and to flexibly import and export data. NEMO has been implemented within, and integrated into, the UNIX environment. A unified command syntax provides users with a simple help facility, and provide programmers with a ready-made user interface. A general method for hierarchically structured binary data files is used to communicate between programs. We also describe a proposal to adopt FITS BINTABLEs as a basis for interchanging and archiving simulation results.
