== What is XDS, and how to obtain it? ==
XDS is a program package written for the "reduction" of 2-dimensional data images ("frames") obtained from crystals irradiated with monochromatic X-rays. The package mainly consists of the programs XDS (which processes a single dataset), [[XSCALE]] (for scaling of several datasets) , [[XDSCONV]] (for conversion of output file to other formats) and [[VIEW]] (for visualizing).
The author of the program is Wolfgang Kabsch (Wolfgang dot Kabsch at mpimf-heidelberg dot mpg dot de).
