PRESTO 2.1

PRESTO is a large suite of pulsar search and analysis software developed by Scott Ransom mostly from scratch. It was primarily designed to efficiently search for binary millisecond pulsars from long observations of globular clusters (although it has since been used in several surveys with short integrations and to process a lot of X-ray data as well). It is written primarily in ANSI C, with many of the recent routines in Python.  According to Steve Eikenberry, PRESTO stands for: PulsaR Exploration and Search TOolkit!
