csv - Download SIMBAD data in CSV format


 csv Arcturus >arcturus.csv
 csv -help



This option displays documentation and then exits.


This option causes a display of the raw data in Data::Dumper format, rather than as CSV.


This script takes as its arguments the names of objects to be looked up in the SIMBAD database, and copies the obtained information to standard output as comma-separated values, one line per object. The individual fields are:

 object name
 right ascension (in decimal degrees)
 declination (in decimal degrees)
 proper motion in right ascension
 proper motion in declination
 velocity in recession
