Abstract: We have developed a new CL for IRAF to allow us to develop scripts with capabilities not easily obtained in the current IRAF CL. The new CL is based on Python, a powerful, freely available object-oriented scripting language with an large and growing user base. We can run virtually all existing IRAF tasks with full functionality including interactive graphics and image display. Since there is a module for Python that provides IDL-like array manipulation, we expect to eventually combine the strengths of the IRAF and IDL environments into one system.
