NAME

       CosmicCalculator - estimate cosmological values

SYNOPSIS

       astcosmiccal [OPTION...]

DESCRIPTION

       CosmicCalculator  is  part  of  GNU  Astronomy  Utilities  0.8.   CosmicCalculator will do
       cosmological calculations. If no redshfit is specified, it will only print the main  input
       parameters. If only a redshift is given, it will print a table of all calculations. If any
       of the single row calculations are requested, only their values will  be  printed  with  a
       single space between each.

       For  more  information, please run any of the following commands. In particular the second
       contains a very  comprehensive  explanation  of  CosmicCalculator's  invocation:  expected
       input(s), output(s), and a full description of all the options.

       All options and their values:
              $ astcosmiccal -P

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
              $ info astcosmiccal

       Full section in manual/book:
              $ info CosmicCalculator

       Full Gnuastro manual/book:
              $ info gnuastro

       If  you  couldn't find your answer in the manual, you can get direct help from experienced
       Gnuastro users and developers. For more information, please run:
