planetary body renderer

Xplanet renders an image of a planet into an X window or a file. All of the major planets and most satellites can be drawn, and different map projections are also supported, including azimuthal, hemisphere, Lambert, Mercator, Mollweide, Peters, polyconic, and rectangular.

In order to run xplanet, you'll need at least one map file. Some maps are included in the xplanet-images package.

Package version:1.2.1-3+b1


Specify an arc file to be plotted against the background stars.  Each
line in the file must have the following syntax:

dec1 ra1 dec2 ra2

where declination is in degrees and right ascension is in hours.  This
option has no effect if -projection is specified.

-arc_spacing spacing
When drawing an arc, draw line segments that are spacing degrees
apart.  The default is 0.1 degrees.  Line s


Each line should have the following syntax:

lat1 lon1 lat2 lon2

where all values are in degrees.  In addition, the keywords "color",
"spacing", and "thickness" are supported as in the example below:

33.9 -118.4 52.3 4.8 color=SpringGreen spacing=0.5 thickness=2 # LAX-AMS

Valid values for "color" are the same as for the -color option.  The
value for spacing defines the distance between dots on 


The config file is divided into sections which start with a line like
[body], where body is either default (everything in this section,
which should be at the top, applies to all bodies unless overridden
later), or a body name like saturn.

Be careful to specify options that apply to only one planet under that
planet's section, and not under [default].  For example, a common
mistake is to put clou
