Official Mirror
Perl interface to William Pence's cfitsio subroutine library. For more
information on cfitsio, see
This module attempts to provide a wrapper for nearly every cfitsio routine,
while retaining as much cfitsio behavior as possible. As such, one should
be aware that it is still somewhat low-level, in the sense that handing an
array which is not the correct size to a routine like fits_write_img()
may cause SIGSEGVs.
The goal is to eventually use these routines to build a more Perl-like
interface to many common tasks such as reading and writing of images and
ASCII and binary tables.
