    Each day I get compilations of TLEs from Space-Track
    and Mike McCants' What do you find best
    to automate these tasks?
    * Login to Space-Track
    * Get the whole-catalog zip file (a different name
    each day)
    * Maybe get the TIP upcoming decayers if there are any
    * Logout
    * Get Mike McCants'
    * Unzip these
    * Merge the TLE files into one big TLE compilation
    * Run the predictions using Rob Matson's Skymap
    I could do this all using batch files or Perl scripts,
    but would welcome any existing solutions!
    Thanks, Mark
