We present a computer program for modelling energy flux distribution and light curves of eclipsing binaries from far ultraviolet to infrared regions. The Roche model is assumed. Proximity effects of components (reflection of radiation and surface gravity darkening) are taken into account. The calculations are made in the absolute flux units and the newest Kurucz's (1996) models of stellar atmospheres are used. As an example, we consider the Algol ($\beta$ Persei) system, where an eclipsing pair (Algol A-B) is accompanied by the third component (Algol C).
