We present a short description and update of the single-dish analysis environment in AIPS++, called DISH. The focus on DISH has been to provide traditional single-dish spectral line data analysis tools with support for extensibility and customization of the package. It currently supports end-to-end processing of data, from data flagging and calibration, through averaging, fitting, statistics and imaging. DISH and AIPS++ are the primary analysis tools for data from the Green Bank Telescope and are also in use at several other observatories. We provide examples of its use and outline the general features. DISH is available now with the sixth public release of AIPS++ (V1.7) (http://aips2.nrao.edu).
