Abstract: SLIM is a program developed at ST-ECF to simulate direct and slitless spectroscopic images. It is written in Python to keep development time short and features all of the spectral elements available in the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) which is to be installed on-board the Hubble Space Telescope. SLIM produces slitless spectroscopy simulations which include the effects of geometric distortions, fringing, and the field-dependence of the spectral dispersion. We illustrate the use of SLIM with simulations of the HDF-N with the G800L grism using both the Wide Field Channel and with the High Resolution Channel.
