Hi all,

Thanks for your suggestions! I will have a look at the spline parameters and 
try to replot as needed.

Subject: Re: [Ifeffit] Sulfur EXAFS k oscillations

Actually, I have seen effects this like with the Spline Clamps turned up like 
you have them. What does this look like if you set Spline Clamps, both low and 
high, to none? Also, you should plot the full XAFS (in E, the whole thing, with 
the edge) and look at the background curve. My guess is it is oscillating and 
not doing a good job splining the data.
