Bug#891203: astropy-utils: Please package the showtable script

Yannick Roehlly
Package: astropy-utils
Version: 3.0-2
Severity: wishlist

Hi,

The showtable script is, I think, useful and should be packaged. I created
a manpage (attached) based on the script help.  As there is already
a showtable.1 manpage in casacore-tools, maybe we can rename the script to
showtable.py.

Regards,

Yannick

Bug#891203: astropy-utils: Please package the showtable script

Thanks for the report, and for the manpage.

/usr/bin/showtable actually conflicts with libdata-showtable-perl. I am
not really happy to use the ".py" suffix for the rename, since usually
utilities should not have language specific suffixes. Instead. I opened
an upstream issue

https://github.com/astropy/astropy/issues/7233

Let's see where this goes.

showtable.1 in casacore-utils however referred to a binary that was
renamed to "showtableinfo" at some time; I just forgot to remove the
manpage. This will be fixed with the next upload of casacore.

Best

Ole
