My question is why program authors make their 2-line format reading 
routines too dumb to skip some headers and footers.

Your impassioned plea motivated me to add a feature to the AMSAT.ORG 
keps processor to generate a stripped file of just the valid 2-line 
element sets from the KEPS mailing list bulletins. From now on, you 
can find what you requested at


or by anonymous FTP from ftp.amsat.org in /amsat/keps/current/nasabare.txt

This file, like the existing amsat.all and nasa.all files in the same 
place, is updated automatically whenever the KEPS bulletins come out. 
Usually, once a week on or about Friday.
