SYNOPSIS

ephcom_testeph ephemeris-file testpo-file [output-file]


 

DESCRIPTION

Reads test dates and coordinate values from a JPL TESTPO file, interpolates coordinates from a binary ephemeris file for those dates, and compares with precomputed results given in the JPL TESTPO file. Reports results for any dates that are in the range of the binary ephemeris file. Silently skips dates in the TESTPO file not the in range of the binary ephemeris file.

ephemeris-file
the binary ephemeris input file.
testpo-file
JPL TESTPO.x file, where 'x' is the ephemeris number (e.g., 200, 405, and 406). If "-", the file will be read from stdin.
