A suite of C-shell scripts
to rapidly extract astronomical data
without typing fields in a Web browser

To run these scripts (the first time), you must:

  1. Save them onto your disk with your Web browser, in a directory that lies in your path
  2. Make them executable (chmod ugo+x filename)
  3. Type rehash
  4. For instructions on how to use each script, type filename -help

These scripts require that the lynx Web browser be installed on your system, with version greater or equal to 2.5, except for getnedcoords, and getnedvels, which now use the wget web content retrieval command.

Please acknowledge use in your papers.
