The ASL software package for processing radio interferometric observations, developed by the Astro Space Center of the Lebedev Physical Institute, is briefly reviewed. The results of the comparison of image reconstruction algorithms of ASL and CASA programs are presented. For comparison, the ALMA telescope observations of the gravitational lensing effect are used.
