riras - Select from the IRAS Point Source Catalog

This shell script uses star to extract selected entries from a binary copy of the IRAS Point Source Catalog, listing the results and/or saving them to a disk file in any of several formats. For ease of use, it is set up with the same arguments as rgsc, which reads the HST Guide Star Catalog. To plot the IRAS Point Source Catalog, use skymap.
