Hypermet-PC has been developed in the mid-nineties at the Institute of Isotopes and Surface Chemistry based on a successful FORTRAN code from the seventies. With additional calibration routines and other helping features it has proved to be a very useful tool in quantitative analysis performed either with NAA or with PGAA. The sophisticated built-in peak-shape function allows the fitting of asymmetric peaks from large-volume germanium detectors over a very wide energy range needed for PGAA. The experience collected when evaluating several thousands gamma-spectra acquired for routine analysis and spectroscopic research, is summarized in the paper.
