ROSETTA PCK Files

  This "aareadme.txt" file describes the contents of the KERNELS/PCK directory  
  of the ROSETTA SPICE data server. It also provides the file naming            
  conventions used for the ROSETTA PCK kernels, and it provides identification  
  of the most current version of each kind of PCK file.                         
                                                                                
  PCK files in this directory are either binary or text files. Text files are   
  created manually with the information from mainly the 2000 IAU Report,        
  with the exception of the Rosetta Asteroid Targets (Lutetia and Steins),      
  with information was obtained from "The Rosetta Asteroid Targets" paper       
  [Ref 4]. Binary files are created from the information contained in the       
  EOP files provided by IERS.                                                   
                                                                                
  All binary PCK files (*.BPC) contained in this directory are unix binary      
  files. These may be used as is (without format conversion) in a non-unix      
  environment by using any recent version of the SPICE Toolkit (Version N0052   
  or later). [Ref 2a]                                                           
                                                                                
  All text PCK files (*.TPC) contained in this directory are unix text files.   
  These may be used in a non-compatible text environment by using the ASCII     
  mode of FTP to port the files. [Ref 2a]
