Description : Starlink Tables Infrastructure Library
STIL is a pure Java library for generic input, output and processing
of tabular data. It presents to the application programmer a view of
a table which looks the same regardless of whether it came from a
FITS file, a VOTable, an ASCII text file, a query on a relational
database, or whatever. Thus the application doesn't have to worry
about the storage format of tables either when reading or writing
them, it can concentrate on doing processing. STIL's idea of a table
is rich enough to include table and column metadata, and table cells
which contain scalar or single- or multi-dimensional array data of
numerical, string or other types. This is well suited to astronomical
data, though it can be of use in other fields as well.
STIL comes with a range of supported input and output formats
(including VOTable, FITS, SQL, ASCII, CSV, CDF, GBIN) and can be
extended to cope with others.
The package will be maintained by the Debian Astro team. It is part of
the effort to package the Virtual Observatory Java tools from Starlink.
A git repository will be created at
The package depends on the creation of kuropatkin-healpix,
starjava-connect, starjava-pal, and starjava-util.
