rppm - read selected entries from the PPM star catalog
This shell script uses star
to extract selected entries from a binary copy of the
PPM Star Catalog,
listing the results and/or saving them to a disk file in any of several
formats. For ease of use, it is set up with the same arguments as
rgsc, which reads the HST Guide Star Catalog.
If the "help" option is specified on the command line, allowable options
and current parameter values are printed. If the -menu flag is set, the
user is prompted for responses through a series of menus. To turn off the
prompts, use -nmenu as a command-line argument.
