History: The machine-readable version of this catalogue was reformatted and checked in the CDS by O.Yu. Malkov in 1989. It differs from the original printed version on the following points : a) The periods are all expressed in days. b) The errors coming from the preparation of the catalogue that were detected by Malkov in Bull.Inf.CDS 36 (1989) were corrected. Symbols':' were written in the corresponding reference-column for systems number 4,8,23,31,126,168,172,189,239,247,259 and 277; for these systems errors in the astrophysical parameters coming from the sources were detected. c) The inaccuracy flags in P, e, K1, V01 and f(m) for systems number 85,99, 106,111,126,185,310,361,374,393, and 421 were removed. Symbols ':' were written in the corresponding reference-column if '*' were absent there. d) The letters O and o were changed for 0 (zero) for systems number 250 (in m2sin3i) and 382 (in f(m)). e) The decimal points were added when they were missing. The references were keypunched by W.Maslo. * 28-Feb-2000: ReadMe standardized (Francois Ochsenbein, CDS)
