I tried posting this earlier, but it doesn't seem to have shown up.

I've written some programs to convert the publicly-available PPM and Hipparcos/Tycho-2 catalog data into XEphem 3.4 xe2 catalogs. This is somewhat different (and probably much more resource-intensive) than Johnathan Senning's xe-to-xe2 converter. However, you can also adapt this to convert other catalog data into xe2 format, or generate customized catalogs.

You can check it out at:
