NAME

Astro::Catalog::IO::TST - Standard Tab Separated Table format I/O

SYNOPSIS

  $cat = Astro::Catalog::IO::TST->_read_catalog( \@lines );
  \@lines = Astro::Catalog::IO::TST->_write_catalog( $cat );

DESCRIPTION

Performs IO for catalogues that use the standard Tab Separated Table (TST) format. The TST format is commonly returned by astronomical catalogue servers that use the Astronomical Catalogue Library (ACL) format, although it is also perfectly reasonable to read and write this format to disk.

The TST format is specified in a number of documents. For example SSN/75 [http://www.starlink.rl.ac.uk/star/docs/ssn75.htx//ssn75.html] by Clive Davenhall.
