mac default iconPyFITS for Mac Publisher's description

Python module for working with FITS files

PyFITS provides an interface to FITS formatted files under the Python scripting language and PyRAF, the Python-based interface to IRAF.

PyFITS can be used both for interactive data analysis and for writing analysis scripts in Python using FITS files as either input or output.

What's New in This Release:

В· Checksum support now correctly conforms to the FITS standard. pyfits supports reading and writing both the old checksums and new standard-compliant checksums. The `fitscheck` command-line utility is provided to verify and update checksums.
В· Added a new optional keyword argument do_not_scale_image_data to the pyfits.open convenience function. When this argument is provided as True, and an ImageHDU is read that contains scaled data, the data is not automatically scaled when it is read. This option may be used when opening a fits file for update, when you only want to update some header data. Without the use of this argument, if the header updates required the size of the fits file to change, then when writing the updated information, the data would be read, scaled, and written back out in its scaled format (usually with a different data type) instead of in its non-scaled format.
В· Added a new optional keyword argument disable_image_compression to the pyfits.open function.

System Requirements:

В· Python
Program Release Status: Minor Update
