FORTRAN Generation

Conversion of standardized ReadMe file for catalog 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.

*Contents of /pub/cats  (Public Astronomical Catalogues and Lists)
*The subdirectories I, II ... IX contain catalogues for public access.
*Each of these subdirectories is itself a subdirectory containing 
*individual catalogues. The definition of the categories is:
*I    Astrometric Data
*II   Photometric Data
*III  Spectroscopic Data
*IV   Cross-Identifications
*V    Combined Data
*VI   Miscellaneous
*VII  Non-stellar Objects
*VIII Radio and far-IR data
*IX   High-energy data
*B    Catalogues used in data-bases (regularly updated)
*J    Published data ordered by Journal
*     in subdirectories Abbr/Volume/First_Page
*     where Abbr takes the values:
*      A+A   = Astron. Astrophys.
*      A+AS  = Astron. Astrophys. Suppl. Ser.
*      AJ    = Astron. J.
*      ApJ   = Astrophys. J.
*      ApJS  = Astrophys. J. Suppl. Ser.
*      IAUS  = IAU Symposium
*      MNRAS = Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc.
*      PASP  = Publ. Astron. Soc. Pacific
