Night Vision is a "planetarium" program that will display the heavens from any location on earth. Viewing options allow the user to control which sky objects to display, which font to use, and manipulation of various star parameters. Time may be set to run at multiple speeds, including backwards. Star charts may be printed.
A list of features:
Installing Night Vision
Download nvj40.zip. Create a folder (directory) "nvj". Unzip the "nvj40.zip" file to the new folder "nvj".
The nvj.cmd file
Night Vision version 4.0 works with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have made a nvj.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160\bin set CLASSPATH= [drive: nvj] cd [drive: nvj]\nvj java -Duser.home=C:\PROGRAMS\NVJ -jar nvj.jar 2>nvj_bugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for Night Vision with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file "nvj.cmd" from the distribution. This file is copied to the "nvj" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs.
Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: nvj]\nvj\nvj.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "Night Vision 4.0". You find enclosed in the file a suitable OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all driveletters are set to C:) and an OS/2 Night Vision icon: nvj-ecs.zip.
