ReadMe 80 . This file stars.dat 61 19 Star positions (from SIMBAD database) table3.dat 54 2015 *Adopted line data and measured equivalent widths in RCrB and EHe stars.
Note on table3.dat: It should be noted that some of the lines listed were only used in the determinations of the stellar parameters and not in the final abundance determinations. Furthermore, several lines were later discarded due to suspected blends or uncertain gf-values. No abundances are given for the HeI and CII lines since they have mainly been used as diagnostics of the stellar parameters using spectral synthesis. The CI lines consist of two groups with gf-values taken for the first group (with increasing wavelengths) from the Opacity Project (Luo & Pradhan 1989, J. Phys. B. 22, 3377; Seaton et al., 1994, Cat. VI/80) and the second group (also with increasing wavelengths) from Kurucz & Peytremann (1975, , SAO Special Report 362). The latter lines have not been used for the abundance determinations due to their significantly larger scatter.
