ephem: 2003/04/25, MWB, changed test for bad return on code 12

moscal: 2003/03/30 ,MWB, added fix from 0 DN pixels (usually from KPNO)

srcast: 2003/02/21, MWB, added a blank padding character to make sure object name never abuts the file name in the log file.
findsrc: 2003/02/21, MWB, added a blank padding character to make sure object name never abuts the file name in the log file.
xdesig: 2003/02/04, MWB, fixed minor bug in a warning statement
des_sum: 03/02/04, MWB - added a trap on reading lplast.xrft files to catch when those files don't exist or are empty.
des_sum: 03/01/21, MWB - fixed loop counter on scanning Mosaic reduction directories
p6model: 2003/1/15, DWL, Modified to call the updated routine HSTPSF, which uses TinyTim Version 6.1 Alpha. A PSF is returned from HSTPSF, only if the requested PSF file is found in disk cache.
hstpsf: 2003/01/15, DWL, Added keywords CAMERA, CHIP, PSFSIZE, and SAMPFACT. These allow continued, but minimal support for calls from P6MODEL. The new TinyTim (Version 6.1 Alpha) does not generate the same output as the old TinyTim, for the old planetary camera. The modifications allow for return of a P6 PSF array, if called from P6MODEL and the old PSF file is available in disk cache; new P6 PSF's are not generated for calls from P6MODEL. Updated to use TinyTim Version 6.1 Alpha. Added support for the new ACS/HRC HST camera. The new HRC code will be used if called from the new routine HRCMODEL (CAMERA=16). Modified the local common block to use a single anonymous structure whose tags manage the PSF memory cache.
hrcmodel: Created by Doug Loucks, consultant for Lowell Observatory, 2003/01/15. Note: The routine P6MODEL was used as a basis for this routine. Most of the code is identical to the code in P6MODEL.
mysqlquery: 2003/01/10, MWB, fixed multi-line query error. Only one query per call is allowed. BUGS/WISH LIST: Ought to verify connection to MySQL server. Does nothing helpful with SQL command results. Does nothing helpful to identify/report bad SQL syntax.
skysclim: 2002/12/18, MWB, fixed bug causing crash when image is smaller than npts.
backsub: 2002/12/12, MWB, Added KEEPMEAN keyword.
getobloc: 2002/12/09, MWB, converted to separate standalone routine.
obsplan: 2002/12/04, MWB, added support for strings in obs input.
coord: 2002/12/04, MWB, fixed obs to accept strings
mimiretc: 2002/12/02, MWB, fixed set_plot bug on Windows platforms
mimiretc: written by Marc W. Buie, Lowell Observatory, 2002/11/26
