Astro::Catalog::IO::UKIRTBS - Old format used by UKIRT Bright Star catalogues
$cat = Astro::Catalog::IO::UKIRTBS->_read_catalog( \@lines );
This class provides a read method for catalogs written in a format used by the old
ukstar web interface to the SAO and Bright Star catalogues. It is probable that this format has a real name and is a historical format rather than a UKIRT-specific format but the history of
ukstar and the associated catalogue files is not known to the author of this module.
Parses the catalogue lines and returns a new
Astro::Catalog object containing the catalog entries.
$cat = Astro::Catalog::IO::JCMT->_read_catalog( \@lines );
No options are supported.
The catalog format uses fixed formatting (first column is column 1):
Columns 1-7 star id 10-20 Right Ascension (presumed B1950). Radians 21-32 Declination (presumed B1950). Radians 33-38 "rap" (unknown) 39-44 "decp" (unknown) 45-49 V Magnitude 50- Spectral type
