Using as Standalone

Well, as I’ve said before, the PySIMBAD can also be used as a standalone tool.
Even though it won’t produce that much, you can easily alter it via editing the sourcecode.

First of all, don’t forget to get your script to be executable.

$ chmod +x PySIMBAD.py

Now you can easily run the code like this.

$ ./PySIMBAD.py "bl cam"
