2HDMC is a general-purpose calculator for the two-Higgs doublet model. It allows parametrization of the Higgs potential in many different ways, convenient specification of generic Yukawa sectors, the evaluation of decay widths (including higher-order QCD corrections), theoretical constraints and much more.
