minimum requirements: The latest version of StarPlot is 0.95.2; it is based on the GTK+ graphics library, version 2.x. You will need that and a recent C++ compiler, preferably g++ 2.95.x or higher, to compile the program. (If you only have GTK+ 1.2, you can still compile StarPlot version 0.93.1.) In theory StarPlot should compile on any Unix platform with GTK+ 2 and g++ installed. As of version 0.94 StarPlot has an autoconf-generated configure script; this should make compilation straightforward via the usual procedure:

StarPlot description
StarPlot is a program for Unix that allows you to view charts of the relative 3-dimensional positions of stars in space.

It is free software; the source code for StarPlot is available under the GNU General Public License. Here is a screenshot (click for a larger image).

Here are some key features of "StarPlot":

· Stars can be right-clicked to display a data popup window.
· Stars can be displayed or hidden by spectral class and absolute magnitude (also shown above).
· Stellar absolute magnitude limits can be set automatically based on the radius of the chart.
· Non-stellar objects such as nebulae are also supported.
· The stars being viewed may be plotted on a Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
· Charts may be viewed in either celestial or galactic coordinate systems.
· Charts may be recentered, rotated, or zoomed in or out with a mouse click (this can also, of course, be done via dialog boxes for more precision).
· Current chart parameters may be saved to a file and reloaded later.
· The data file format is easy to read, well-documented, and text based.. . Publisher of StarPlot, Author of StarPlot 0.95.5.
