Re: [nbos] Importing .csv files

I'm pretty sure there isn't a built in .csv export tool. I've just
written to Ed to see if he can offer any way out for me. It would be a
useful tool, wouldn't it?

By the way, I can't write slow and clean scripts, let alone quick and
dirty ones :-)

Cheers,

Mike

I believe that AstroSynthesis can export *.csv files.
In theory one could export the existing star list,
merge the two *.csv files, and write a quick and dirty
program to parse through it and make a list of
stars that are suspiciously too close to each other.
Or even to weed them out.
