python setup.py install

Read the original README

The original source of this code can be found here: https://www.astro.rug.nl/~brentjen/fchart.html

However it relies on numarray which has been deprecated in favor of numpy. This repository contains updated sourcecode so that the code may run with numpy.

This repo also contains tyc2.bin in the data/catalogs directory. The original tyc2.bin hosted on Michiel's website seemed to have errors, so this is a rebuilt version using data downloaded here: http://cdsarc.u-strasbg.fr/viz-bin/Cat?I/259
