XDSGUI is a GUI (graphical user interface) for XDS that is supposed to help both novice and experienced users.  
 
It graphically displays the ASCII and [http://www.bernstein-plus-sons.com/software/CBF cbf] files that XDS writes, and can run useful shell commands with a simple mouse click. The design goal of the program is to enable XDS data processing without the commandline, and to supply additional graphical information, in a simple, user-modifiable and user-extensible way.
