Sorry if this is off topic but:

Does anyone have a proper specification of the .tle (2-line-element)
format ??
I think it was posted here 1 or 2 years ago and now I've lost it when
my hard-drive gave up.

I'm trying to work on some program that can take several .tle-files, merge
them into one big list that only has the newest of ever NORAD-number
represented.

Thanks
