MPCORB File Sorter
BHudgens Mar 19, 2016
I've been using Denis Boucher's
2007 program, MPCORB File Sorter, for several years to edit the
MPCORB.DAT file. I can no longer set the date beyond December
2015. It appears that date limit is set within the program.
Is there a newer version of the program that allows input of
current date before sorting the MPCORB.DAT file?
My main purpose in using this excellent program is to reduce the
size of the large MPCORB.dat file by setting 15 pr 16 magnitude
as the limiting magnitude. I know you can set the asteroid
display magnitude limit in Guide but using the edited smaller
MPCORB.DAT file allows Guide to process the .dat file quicker.
I am currently using Guide 9.1
Any help most appreciated.
