FORTRAN Generation

Conversion of standardized ReadMe file for file /./ftp/cats/VII/227/ into FORTRAN code for reading data files line by line.

Note that special values are assigned to unknown or unspecified numbers (also called NULL numbers); when necessary, the coordinate components making up the right ascension and declination are converted into floating-point numbers representing these angles in degrees.

*Note on SNR:
*  This designation is based on the galactic longitude and latitude of
*  the source centroid quoted to the nearest tenth of a degree. (Note:
*  in this catalogue additional leading zeros are not used.)
*Note on RAh, RAm, RAs, DE-, DEd, DEm:
*  The accuracy of the quoted values depends on the size of the
*  remnant. For small remnants they are to the nearest few seconds of
*  time and the nearest minute of arc for RA and DEC respectively. For
*  the larger remnants they are rounded to coarser values. They are in
*  every case sufficient to specify a point within the boundary of the
*  remnant. These coordinates are generally deduced from radio maps
*  rather than from X-ray or optical observations, and are J2000.0.
*Note on MajDiam, MinDiam:
*  Usually taken from the highest resolution radio map available,
*  although for some barely resolved sources that are thought to be SNRs
*  the only available size is that from Gaussian models after
*  deconvolution with the observed beam size. The boundary of
*  most remnants approximates reasonably well to a circle or an ellipse; a
*  single value is quoted for the angular size of the more nearly circular
*  remnants, which is the diameter of a circle with an area equal to that of
*  the remnant, but for elongated remnants the product of two values is
*  quoted, and these are the major and minor axes of the remnant boundary
*  modeled as an ellipse. In a few cases an ellipse is not a satisfactory
*  description of the boundary of the object (refer to the description of the
*  individual object given the full catalogue entry), although an angular size
*  is still quoted for information. For `filled-centre' remnants the size
*  quoted is for the largest extent of the observed radio emission, not, as
*  at times has been used, the half-width of the centrally brightened peak.
*Note on S(1GHz):
*  The flux density of the remnant at 1 GHz in Jansky. This is not a
*  measured value, but that deduced from the observed radio frequency
*  spectrum of the source. The frequency of 1 GHz is chosen because flux
*  density measurements at frequencies both above and below this value
*  are usually available.
*Note on Sp-Index, u_Sp-Index:
*  The spectral index is {alpha} where S({nu}) {} {v}^-{alpha}^
*  The spectral index of the integrated radio emission from the remnant
*  is either a value quoted from the literature, or one deduced from the
*  available integrated flux densities of the remnant. For several SNRs a
*  simple spectral model is not adequate to describe their radio emission
*  because the spectral index varies across the face of the remnant or
*  that the integrated spectrum is curved, and in these cases the spectral
*  index includes the 'v' in u_SI. In some cases, for example where the
*  remnant is highly confused with thermal emission, the spectral index
*  is given as '?' since no value can be deduced with any confidence.
*Note on type:
*  S  remnant shows a shell radio structure
*  F  remnant shows a filled center ('filled centre') radio structure
*  C  remnant shows a composite or combination radio structure
*  S?, C?, F? if there is some uncertainty
*  ?  object is conventionally considered a SNR although its nature is
*     poorly known or not well understood.
*Note on Names:
*  Other names commonly used for the object. These are given
*  in parentheses if the remnant is only part of the source.
*  For some objects, notably the Crab Nebula, not all common names
*  are given.
