Abstract: In the precision cosmology era, more and more data are collected and analyzed. As data (and the associated systematics) is better understood the analysis is revised and refined. In turn, the analysis codes get more and more complex. These programs are usually developed by astronomers and their development is often not planned but born out of necessity. An example of such codes is picca. This code is used mainly to measure correlation functions associated with the Ly¿ forest. This includes the 3D Ly BAO analysis, and the 1D Power Spectrum analysis of the Ly forest. In this work, we present an analysis of the code, documenting its workflow for the first time, and providing a high level of standardisation of the code (quantified using pylint). We also evaluate the efficiency of the automatic testing of PICCA. We conclude that a full revision of the data model is required, and that more extensive tests that are smaller and independent are needed.
