... find stars for TPoints with findstar.C
If you have taken already some TPoints, there will still be "holes" in
the sky, where no TPoints have been taken yet.
The root-macro findstar.C is looking for stars in the YBS catalog,
which are suitable for TPoints.

||The directory where the TPoints are stored (usually /home/stesy/Cosy/tpoint/)
||The date, after which TPoints are taken into account, format YYYYMMDD (usually the first of the month, e.g. 20060801)
||The macro considers all stars which are brighter than magnitude <mag>
||The size of the region in degrees (divider of 90) in zd and az, one
number, e.g. 15 (divides the zd range into 6 and the az range into 24
The macro is scanning sequentially all regions of the sky defined by
the <size>. The <size> is given in degrees in zd and az.
By the <size> you determine so to say a piece of cake in zd and az at the
sky. The lower the <size>, the larger the number of regions.
In every region the macro looks for stars in the catalogwhich are brighter than
magnitude <mag>. It displays if it found one or not and returns a
list of stars suitable for Tpoints.
If there is already a TPoint in one region, the macro doesn't consider
this sky region.
