MOOG   
Description Code that performs a variety of LTE line analysis and spectrum synthesis tasks. Its typical use is to assist in the determination of the chemical composition of a star.
Version installed Fedora-26: MOOG2013 (installed in May 2013).
Do not confuse it with SUPERMOOG, a different version which seems to be less powerful than MOOG2013 and is not as widely used as the latter.
Usage At the command prompt, type:
MOOG2013    (or MOOGSILENT for the silent version)

Using MOOG requires that you have the Supermongo startup file .sm in your home.

Also, a script has been made available to convert between the "VALD" format and the MOOG format:
vald2MOOG file_VALD file_output
(just type the command without arguments for a short description)

Additional Info Strange errors with MOOG?
Sometimes MOOG will fail with messages like "driver not found" or other inexplicable errors, while the input files look perfectly fine. The problem may be due to extra characters, such as "^M", in the input files, usually invisible when you list the file or when you open it with emacs, nedit or another text editor. Such characters might be added when the file is sent by email, or perhaps copied by ftp.
If you experience such errors, use the command cat -t to list your files. If you see "^M" or similar control characters (usually at the end of each line), remove them with the command dos2unix filename, and try MOOG again.
