*imexamine* - General analysis of image containing many sources

This task (developed for use with optical images, but also useful with x-ray data) will quickly compute location, size, ellipticity, and position angle of sources. Input position is from cursor that user places on desired source in display. Local background is subtracted and flux and magnitude are calculated. User can generate contour plots of any portion of the image and count rates in slices through the image.

The program is advertised as ``quick [optical] photometry''.
