Abstract: This short paper presents an overview of the IRAF tasks and algorithms used to automatically identify calibration spectral lines and derive an instrumental dispersion function. The tasks take an uncalibrated observed spectrum, a reference file of dispersion coordinates, an optional calibrated reference spectrum, and various constraining parameters and automatically find the dispersion function for the observed spectrum.
