Question from Dan Feldman:

Hi, I'm working on writing or finding a Python script/module that can automate the measuring of equivalent widths for both emission and absorption lines, fitting various line profiles (e.g. Gaussian profiles, Voigt Profiles). How do I go about this?

For instance, Ben Weiner commented on a blog post here http://www.astrobetter.com/spectral-line-analysis-tools/#comment-3349 and I basically want to know how to do that in python.

Thanks!
