I believe in some of my exchanges on this mailing list in the last many 
works someone mentioned an IRAF facility akin to what is popularly 
called source extract. Mention was made of what could be considered a 
command name that somehow is used in connection with the idea. Does 
anyone know what that single (command) word was or where I would find 
the extractor topic discussed in IRAF?

I just searched my sent astropy messages folder using my mail browser 
tool, but found nothing in messages connected with the mention of IRAF. 
Possibly it was on the IRAF forum, but I don't see it there.
