Abstract

The literature contains articles on community-developed codes such as AstroPy (Astropy Collaboration et al. 2013, 2018) and yt4 (Turk et al. 2011), their importance in research, and the need for supporting these important codes and those who devote time and effort building and sustaining these resources (Turk 2013; Muna et al. 2016), but has comparatively little about the body of software written by 1, 2, or 3 people, what we here refer to as "short author list" (SAL) codes. A recent examination of the 1978 entries currently in the Astrophysics Source Code Library (ASCL,ascl.net) (Nemiroff & Wallin 1999) reveals that 1348 of them, 68%, are SAL codes.
