AllCometEls.txt vs CometEls.txt

Post by Dunmunro » 21 Jan 2023, 21:35

I guess the Minor planet Center must have renamed the comets file at some point. Anyways I have to remove the 'All' from the AllCometEls.txt file to get AA8 to read it.

It must be happened in the last 3-4 days. That would cause trouble to a lot of software.
For the moment the only solution is to rename the file after the download.
Thanks, Fabio.

If you still want to use the smaller truncated data file CometsEls.txt (971 entries) it's available here; https://www.minorplanetcenter.net/iau/M ... metEls.txt

The AllCometsEls.txt data file currently has 4,576 entries.
