--THANKS--
This is my first LScript. Thanks to Faulknermano for helping on a few sticking points.
This is version 1.0. It runs with LScript v2.6. Backwards compatibility has not been tested. This script is provided uncompiled for other asipiring LScripters to learn from.

--DISTRIBUTION--
This script is freely distributable. This script may not be sold without the expressed consent of MTSI. Contact [email protected]

This script is provided "AS-IS." I do not take responsibity for any damage that may result from use of this script. Use at your own risk.

--WHAT IT DOES--
This script converts Latitude, Longitude, and Altitude into XYZ space and creates a keyframe at the user number which you input in the dialog box.

--OPTIONS--
-You can input the information frame by frame, or if you have a simulation, the script accepts text files to be parsed similar to motion files. (See below for formatting instruction and example.
-You can choose to use a spherical or oblong Earth model. More often than not, if you have large data sets, you will be using a spherical model because the calculations to account for the oblong Earth can greatly complicate some engineering simulations.

--DATA FORMAT FOR TEXT FILE INPUT--
Fields are delimited by a Tab indent. If you want to change this, it is line 94. Change the '\t' to a space " " a comma "," or whatever is easiest for you. I may add this as an additional input in future version.

This may just be the tool I need: giving me the location of the sun with Octane. At least a visual cue as to where.
Thanks.
