Various types of saccadic paradigms, in particular, Prosaccade and Antisaccade tests are widely used in Pathophysiology and Psychology. Despite been widely used, there has not been a standard tool for processing and analyzing the eye tracking data obtained from saccade tests. We describe an open-source software for extracting and analyzing the eye movement data of different types of saccade tests that can be used to extract and compare participants' performance and various task-related measures across participants. We further demonstrate the utility of the software by using it to analyze the data from an antisaccade, and a recent distractor experiment.
