Abstract MESA (Modules for Experiments in Stellar Astrophysics) has become very popular among astrophysicists as a powerful and reliable code to simulate stellar evolution. Analyzing the output data thoroughly may, however, present some challenges and be rather time-consuming. Here we describe MESAFace, a graphical and dynamical interface which provides an intuitive, efficient and quick way to analyze the MESA output. Title of program: MESAFace Catalogue Id: AEOQ_v1_0 Nature of problem Find a way to quickly and thoroughly analyze the output of a MESA run, including all the profiles, and have an efficient method to produce graphical representations of the data. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data AEOQ_v1_0; MESAFace; 10.1016/j.cpc.2012.12.023 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018)
