If you have no ASCII table ready, you can
enter stars manually from printed tables,
using the EDIT/TABLE command to add them to the list.
This editor is briefly described under ``Interactive Editing of Tables'' in the
MIDAS Users Guide.
EDIT/TABLE will automatically be invoked by MAKE/STARTABLE
if you have no ASCII file to convert.
If you don't like the EDT-like editor provided by EDIT/TABLE,
create an ASCII file with whatever editor you like
and set up a *.fmt file to convert it, as described above.
Be very careful to double-check the results, as transposed digits and
other errors are almost certain to creep in when entering data by hand!
