StarPlot is a GTK+ based program, written in C++, which can be used
interactively to view three-dimensional perspective charts of stars.

StarPlot comes with only two small example data files. This (a) makes it
easier to download, and (b) reduces the need to worry about copyright issues
within the program source tree. Other data files can be downloaded and
installed from the StarPlot web page. Please read the copyright information
in the COPYING and README files of those data sets - note that they can be
freely distributed only if *not* modified.
