Adding New Missions

New missions can be added to the mission database file; probably the best approach when adding a new mission is to copy the entries for the most similar one currently supported and edit as appropriate. If a new mission requires particular FTOOLS which are different from the standard used by Xselect, then some changes in the Xselect source code will be necessary. Users are encouraged to copy the standard xselect.mdb and to make any changes to the copy. To use the modified version of the xselect.mdb users should define an environment variable XSELECT_MDB and set its value to the new mission database filename. For example for C-shell (csh) users:
setenv XSELECT_MDB /path/to/your/personal/xselect.mdb
