ASTR 688 S

To run xephem, type xephem at the prompt on a fast astronomy machine. If you get a black and white version, define the following alias and then type xephemc.

alias xephemc 'unsetenv XFILESEARCHPATH; xephem &; setenv XFILESEARCHPATH /usr/openwin/lib/locale/%L/%T/%N%S:/usr/openwin/lib/%T/%N%S'

Some very nice examples and helpful hints about xephem (as well as the program itself) can be found at
