gcb - calculate long and short path to a location


gcb units station1 station2


Gcb computes long/short path distance and heading given the latitude and longitude (degrees and minutes). You must input the lat/long of the two stations. The output will then be relative from station1 to station2. Input the two station lat/longs using the following format: ddd.mmHddd.mmG, lead/lagging zeros can be left out. d = Degrees, m = Minutes, H = Hemisphere (N or S), G = Greenwich (W or E) Units is 'n' for Nautical, 'k' for kilometers, and 's' for Statute.
