FIND/ROMAFOT frame [cat_tab]

This command works exactly like SELECT/ROMAFOT and therefore needs no detailed explanation. The only difference is that FIND/ROMAFOT, designed to select many stars, stores the positions of the objects in a catalogue table which has a different structure than then the intermediate table created by SELECT/ROMAFOT. This table serves as as input for the command ANALYSE/ROMAFOT. The reason for this different table structure will become clear later.

Having selected the program stars, one has now to settle the shape and dimensions of the windows in which to perform the fit. In addition, the number of elementary components that should be included in the fit has to be indicated. This operation can be done by running the command ANALYSE/ROMAFOT once again.
