Abstract: MOSCA (MultiObject Spectroscopy Common Algorithms) is a C/C++ library developed at ESO to ease the reduction of data from multi-object spectrographs. The main project goals are: pluggable design, self-calibration approach, instrument agnostic and use of modern C++ features.
Recent versions of the FORS and VIMOS instrument pipelines are based on MOSCA, demonstrating that the library is generic enough to be used for different instruments. This brings benefits in terms of scientific testing and maintenance costs.
