Version 1.2 - Eric Palmer This program will convert Cartisian points (x, y, z) to lat,lon,radius. Also has an option for a 4th column

File Setup

If using an ICQ:

  1. first make sure the first line has x, y, z values and not Bob's single line description
  2. Make sure to convert any D's to E's (i.e. Bob uses scientific notation with D's that C doesn't recognize)
