NAME

aclist -- list the supported astrometric catalogs

USAGE

aclist catalogs

PARAMETERS

catalogs
The names of the astrometric catalogs to be listed. If catalogs = "*" then all the astrometric catalogs in the catalog configuration file are listed.
verbose = no
List the catalog query and output formats after the catalog name ?
catdb = ")_.catdb"
The catalog configuration file. The value of catdb defaults to the value of the package parameter of the same name. The default catalog configuration file is "astcat$lib/catdb.dat".

DESCRIPTION

Aclist lists the supported astrometric catalogs specified by the catalogs parameter. If catalogs = "*" then all the supported catalogs are listed, otherwise only the catalog names specified by the user are listed. Valid catalog names have the form "catalog@site", e.g. "usno2@noao". If verbose = "yes", then the catalog query and output formats are listed after the catalog name.

The catalog names, addresses, query formats, and query output formats are specified in the catalog configuration file catdb . By default the catalog configuration file name defaults to the value of the package parameter catdb. The default catalog configuration file is "astcat$lib/catdb.dat". Users can add records to this file or create their own configuration file using catdb as a model.

EXAMPLES

1. List all the astrometric catalogs in the catalog configuration file.

cl> aclist *

2. List the query format and the output format for the usno2@noao catalog.

cl> aclist usno2@noao verbose+
