register-stardata(8) Install or remove star data catalogues and astronomy programs


register-stardata [option] {install|remove}    {all|stardata} {all|program}


register-stardata is a program to convert star data catalogues, that conform to the stardata-common policy, to astronomy programs' data formats automatically on package install and removal.
stardata-common is a common framework to manage the insertion and removal of star data catalogues in a Debian system. This program liberates the user from managing the installation and conversion of star data catalogues to the astronomy programs' data formats, converting them automatically during the installation and removing them at uninstall.
