We present a time-dependent one zone SSC+EC code that takes into account the KN-cross section, and calculates self-consistently all orders of Compton scattering. In particular, it produces separate results for the first order Compton component, and for the total Compton emission. The kinetic equation is solved using a stable implicit scheme, and the user can select from a range of physically motivated temporal electron injection profile. The code is written in C, is fully documented and will soon be publicly available through the Internet, along with a set of IDL visualization routines.
