As part of the GTC Control System (GCS) a data processing package is being developed. We will describe the perfomance of the Data Processing Kit (DPK), using real data obtained during the preliminary tests made prior to the commissioning of the GTC (both with a Refractor and the Acquisition and Guiding Camera). Some examples of the versatility of this pipeline will be shown. Comparisons with Data Reduction Packages that are more commonly used (e.g., those IRAF-based) have been made to show the DPK performance.
