CURSA can access catalogues held in three different formats: FITS tables, TST and STL. The restrictions and peculiarities associated with each of these formats are described below.
CURSA determines the type of a catalogue from the `file type' component of the name of the file holding the catalogue. The file types for the various formats are included in the descriptions below. If a file name is specified without a file type then it is assumed to be a FITS table.
