A program for learning ultraviolet and visible spectra was devised. With this program, a spectral curve is drawn, with the area bounded by the curve painted the spectral colors, on a display and/or a paper, and the users can easily understand the meaning of the figure. In addition, the spectral curve of the radiation emitted by a black-body at any given temperature can be drawn, and conversion of a transmission spectrum into an absorption spectrum and vice versa is also possible. The program is written in BASIC.
