NAME


kep_reload - Update Predict's Keplerian elements

SYNOPSIS


kep_reload

DESCRIPTION


KEP_RELOAD is a simple utility that forces an immediate reload of PREDICT's Keplerian
database through a socket connection while PREDICT is running in server mode. It is
especially useful in environments where PREDICT runs continuously, and periodic Keplerian
element updates are made outside of PREDICT, such as through scripts run through a
crontab.

The "kepupdate" script found in this directory is an example of a Keplerian element update
script that can be run on an automated basis through a crontab. It is designed to be
placed in your home directory under a subdirectory called "cronjobs". It downloads
Keplerian orbital data from www.celestrak.com using the HTTP protocol. (The "wget"
utility, available from the Free Software Foundation, is required, and is included in many
Linux distrubutions.)

Type crontab -e to edit your crontab. Simply add the following entry:

0 8 * * * kepupdate

and your orbital database will update each morning at 8:00 AM (provided you have a network
connection at that time).

See the crontab man page for more information on editing your crontab.
