static library for I/O with FITS format data files

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:3.300-2


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

$ gcc cookbook.c -o cookbook -lcfitsio

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

                   Log of Changes Made to CFITSIO

Version 3.30 - 11 April 2012


   - Added new routine called fits_is_reentrant which returns 1 or 0 depending on
     whether or not CFITSIO was compiled with the -D_REENTRANT directive.  This can
     be used to determine if it is safe to use CFITSIO in multi-threaded programs.

   - Implimented much faster byte-swapping algorithms
