Hi, I'm new to ROS and from past 5 days I'm trying create a launcher for navfn and carrot_planner. Can someone please help either by giving a step by step procedure or mail me the launcher if you have already written...

Thanks in advance

Try looking at some example code in existing stacks:

  1. Erratic Robot

  2. Turtlebot

  3. Guardian

I've never seen any launch file explicitly executing those package. They are typically used as a plugin for the move_base package. Of course, you can create your own move_base that uses one of those planners. The code snippets from the wiki pages of those and the source code of move_base are helpful to understand how to use those planners.
