``Evolve ZAMS'' (EZ) is a code derived from Peter Eggleton's stellar evolution program. The core of EZ is a stripped down, rewritten version of a subset of Eggleton's code, specialized to handle single star evolution from the zero-age main sequence until forced to stop by an event such as a helium flash or a crystallizing core. The procedure and data interfaces to the program are designed to be easy to use while still providing a wide range of function. EZ is written in Fortran 95 following current programming practices and can be downloaded from the Web at http://theory.kitp.ucsb.edu/~paxton.
