NAME

Astro::Catalog::IO::Northstar - NorthStar format catalogue parser

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  $cat = Astro::Catalog::IO::Northstar->_read_catalog( \@lines );
  $arrref = Astro::Catalog::IO::Northstar->_write_catalog( $cat, %options );
  $filename = Astro::Catalog::IO::Northstar->_default_file();



DESCRIPTION

This class provides read and write methods for catalogues in the format used by the NorthStar proposal submission system. The methods are not public and should, in general, only be called from the Astro::Catalog write_catalog and read_catalog methods.

METHODS

<B>_read_catalogB> Parses the catalogue lines and returns a new Astro::Catalog object containing the catalog entries.



 $cat = Astro::Catalog::IO::Northstar->_read_catalog( \@lines, %options );



Supported options (with defaults) are:



  telescope => Name of telescope to associate with each coordinate entry
               (defaults to JCMT). If the telescope option is specified
               but is undef or empty string, no telescope is used.



NOTES

The NorthStar (http://proposal.astron.nl) catalogue format is:



  TargetName  hh:mm:ss  dd:mm:ss system  misc



TargetName can not include spaces. The system should be J2000, B1950, Jxxxx, Bxxxx or GALACTIC.

The misc field will be stored as a comment.

GLOBAL VARIABLES

The following global variables can be modified to control the state of the module:
$DEBUG Controls debugging messages. Default state is false.
