DESCRIPTION
.I stmc
is a utility for finding all of the 2MASS Point Source
Catalog objects in a specified region of the sky and listing them with their
sky positions and magnitudes in order of brightness, with the brighter ones
first.
Output is to standard out, unless the -w flag is set, in
which case it goes to objectname.tmc or search.tmc.
It is a link to scat.
