There is a collection of C programs to read and translate
MDA files in the synApps utils directory, and also here:
http://www.aps.anl.gov/bcda/mdautils/

There are python programs for reading and translating MDA files in
the synApps utils directory.  Utils is not published separately from
synApps, but you can browse the repository here:
https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/synApps/utils/trunk/mdaPythonUtils/

There is also a wxPython program to display MDA files in the utils
directory:
https://subversion.xray.aps.anl.gov/synApps/utils/trunk/mdaExplorer/

There is IDL iTools-based software to display MDA files here:
http://cars.uchicago.edu/software/idl/epics_sscan_display.html

There is an IDL program for displaying scan data both from data files,
and from running sscan records.  It's described here, but the releases
on this page are very old:
http://www.aps.anl.gov/bcda/dataVis/scanSee.html

There is a program called "dview" for displaying MDA files, written by
Dohn Arms (the mdautils author).  I don't know if there is a published
version of the program.
