I am happy to say that following Boud's great suggestion, all calculations of CosmicCalculator are now available as outputs on a single line. The change has been pushed to the main repo.

For example you can now get the age, luminosity distance and volume (units can be checked with the `--help' option) at redshift 2 with this command:

$ astcosmiccal -z2 --age --luminositydist --volume
3.289979 15937.134754 627994122975.001465

Or in short option formats:

$ astcosmiccal -z2 -gLv

Or in this extremely compact format (not recommended because it is too cryptic):

$ astcosmiccal -gLvz2

I have thus corrected the title of this task to the only remaining issue: allowing input as time (not just redshift).

Thanks a lot Boud for the great suggestion.

The user should be able to enter either cosmological time t
or redshift z, and should be able to choose from a bigger
range of single-output options.
