NASAWASH extracts valid 2-line Keplerian element sets from a text file, which may contain other text of various kinds.
NASAWASH is a command-line program that can be used standalone or as a filter.
To run the included executable, any environment capable of running well-behaved MS-DOS programs, including all versions of Windows, OS/2, and most DOS emulation environments.
The program should also be compilable on other command-line environments, such as Unix.
Stable. No current development plans. The current released version of NASAWASH is 0.5, released May 21, 1995, but recompiled and re-released in March 2002.
January 22, 2010 -- This week's KEPS bulletins from AMSAT included a plus sign in column 45 of the "1" line of some of the two-line element sets. NASAWASH 0.50 incorrectly rejects these element sets. Version 0.51 (forthcoming) corrects this problem.
NASAWASH may be distributed freely (unmodified) and may be used freely for non-commercial purposes only.
Source code in ANSI C is included.
