SLALIB is a professional-grade library of Astronomical routines, mostly
for coordinate and time conversion. You can find documentation of all
the routines at many sites on the web.
You install it using the normal "python setup.py install" in the
directory where it was unzipped. However, I've never used it under
Windows and am not sure if anything special is needed or not (I suspect
there will be some trickery involved).
