SkyView-in-a-Jar execution:

This document gives an overview of the common arguments to
the SkyView-in-a-Jar application.  For more a comprehensize discussion
of all arguments see the SkyView-in-a-Jar User's Guide.

Usage:
   java -jar skyview.jar [key=arg] [key=arg] ...
   java -cp skyview.jar skyview.executive.Imager [key=arg] ...

  Keys are not case sensitive but values may be.
  Values specifying more than one value use a comma as a separator.
  
  If no keys are specified, this text and the
  default valid surveys are listed.

  Valid keys include:
  
   Survey:     A survey for which an image is requested (e.g, WENSS, DSS)
               (Required, with no default.)
                 To request multiple surveys, separate them by commas.  
		 Survey names are not case sensitive.
                 The 'user' survey references data given in 
		 the UserFile argument
		 
   Settings:   A list of one or more files from which settings are read.
               File settings are processed after argument settings.

   Scaling:    How the output pixel intensities are to be scaled.
               Linear, Log, Sqrt, HistEq are supported
               [Linear]
	       
   Min:        Set all smaller pixel values to this value before scaling.
   
   Max:        Set all larger pixel values to this value before scaling.
   
   RGB:        Create a three color overlay 
	      
   RGBSmooth:  Box smoothing for planes of RGBImages
	       
   Invert:     Invert the color table response (or gray scale 
               if no color lookup table is defined).
	       
   LUT:        Load a color lookup table.  See the users guide 
               for lists of internal color tables and files
	       supplied in the JAR.  User generated color
	       tables may also be used.
	       
   Grid:       Plot a grid of the image or specified coordinate system
               as an image overlay.
   
   GridLabels: Label the grid lines with the coordinate entries
   
   PlotScale:  Scaling for plot symbols
   
   PlotFontSize: Size of plot text in points.
   
   PlotColor:  Color of plot graphics
	       
	 -- Catalog query keys --
	 
   Catalog:    The names of the catalogs to be queried, or URLs
               that specify VOTable outputs.
   
   CatalogFile:The name of a file in which to print the IDs, positions,
               and pixel locations of the catalog entries found.
	       
   CatalogRadius:
   	       A maximum radius from the center of the image for which
	       catalog entries are desired.
	       
   CatalogQualifier:
               A qualification on a column of the returned table (e.g. vmag<10)

   Cache:      A directory (or comma delimited set of directories) 
               where cached files are to be found.  The first cache directory is
               where survey files used in this request will be saved.
	       
   PurgeCache: Delete any survey files downloaded in this request.
