FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) is a data format most used in astronomy. cfitsio is a library of ANSI C routines for reading and writing FITS format data files. A set of Fortran-callable wrapper routines are also included for the convenience of Fortran programmers.

This package contains what you need for compiling sources that use this library in your own code. It also contains example source files that demonstrate the use of cfitsio.

Package version:3.006-1.3


To compile some of the example programs included here, copy the example 
C program to your directory, and then complile it. For say the listhead 
program, after copying:

$ gcc listhead.c -o listhead -lcfitsio -lm

Some documentation on the example C files can be found in the cfitsio-doc
