Company or developer:
  Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic

SPEFO is a small, yet powerful program used for processing stellar spectra at the Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic in Ondrejov. It was originally written in 1990 by Dr. Jirí Horn for processing spectral plates obtained with the 2m telescope of the Ondrejov observatory and scanned with the local five channel microphotometer. Since then the code had been under constant improvement until the sudden death of the author in December 1994. Currently SPEFO is used mainly for the reduction of data from the Ondrejov Reticon detector (1872 pixels, 12 bit A/D), however it can process data from other instruments too, provided that they are in FITS one-dimensional format.

Help how to open STL files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension STL:

As far as we know, this .stl file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
