    Problem with Postscript plotting sheets
    From: John H Henderson
    Date: 1996 Sep 03, 12:40 EDT

    Karl Hahn has made available on the internet an interesting package:
    See: http://www.netsrq.com/~hahn/#astronomy
    As a beginner with celestial navigation, I found in very useful.
    It includes the almanac for the year, Postscript plotting sheets,
    programs for generating HO211 tables, and worksheets.
    I found a problem with the Postscript plotting sheets and Karl
    suggested I post it here.  Postscript files must begin with a
    first line that begins
    %!PS
    These files are missing it.  Just add the line with the text-editor
    of your choice.  (Postscript files are just test files, and the %!PS
    tells your printer to interpret the file as postscript).  I found
    that Ghostview postscript viewer will display the files, but when sent
    to the printer, I get pages of postscript instructions.
    Karl said that he will fix it and is preparing the 1997 package.
