CelestLab - CNES Space Mechanics Toolbox for Scilab 
Version 3.1.0			     

CelestLab is a Scilab toolbox for Space Flight Dynamics. 

It has been developed by CNES-DCT/SB (Centre National d?Etudes Spatiales - 
French Space Agency) for mission analysis purposes.

CelestLab can be used for trajectory analysis and orbit
design for various types of space missions. 
It allows engineers to perform tasks such as: orbit propagation, attitude
computation, elementary manoeuvre computation, change of coordinate systems,

CelestLab now comes with an extension module called CelestLabX. 

CelestLabX includes low-level functions that the user is not supposed to call
directly: all user interfaces and documention are provided in CelestLab. 
The new features in CelestLab that require CelestLabX to be installed are
related to: 
- STELA: CNES orbit long-term propagation software
- Two Line Elements 

If CelestLabX is required but has not been installed, error messages will be 
generated by the corresponding CelestLab functions. 

- CelestLab alone (without CelestLabX) can be used with Scilab versions >=
- The version of CelestLabX that should be used (for users who want it) is

- CelestLabX Atoms page for more details about CelestLabX:

changed in CelestLab compared to the previous version.

How do I get a list of functions in this library and is there help 

I load it with atoms but can't see the help or functions. I run an 
example which worked. 

Thanks for the help

There is a detailled help (with examples)for all functions of CelestLab, once you have 
installed the Library. In addition, there is also a comprehensive general description of 
CelestLab (conventions, tutorials, cookbooks,..)
