Selected STARBASE routines

list_star,star_id$<$_char$>$

Print currently loaded information on star to screen. Star is identified by catalog and number, e.g. BSC1708, FKV0193. For more options, see part on STARBASE.
get_startable
Create startable and fill with catalog information for stars listed in scantable. Note that in this mode (i.e. without parameter), the procedure will prepare the table specifically for use by CHAMELEON. This involves getting the stellar positions from the Hipparcos catalog, diameters from diameters.bsc, and colors from the bright star catalog. If a list of stars is specified, just the catalog data available in the specified catalogs is loaded.
rename_starids,from-to$<$_char$>$
Rename stars, e.g. from FKV designation to BSC designation, in which case from-to would be `fkv-bsc'.
