    Almanac software
    From: Cliff Sojourner
    Date: 2002 Mar 7, 22:57 -0800

    ok, I have to ask:  is there any source code for nautical almanac software
    available?  I have searched high and low in marine, air, navigation, and
    astronomy areas, but all I can find are some commercial programs, and a few
    people's pet projects.  what are those programs based on?  I suppose as a
    last resort I could ask one of the private parties to share.
    
    a related question:  how are almanac tables tested?  how do you know you can
    trust the generated table?  why should I believe one program is better (more
    accurate) than another?
    
    thanks
    Cliff
