fitscopy - copy FITS files with optional filtering


fitscopy inputfile outputfile


Copy an input file to an output file, optionally filtering the file in the process. This
seemingly simple program can apply powerful filters which transform the input file as it
is being copied. Filters may be used to extract a subimage from a larger image, select
rows from a table, filter a table with a GTI time extension or a SAO region file, create
or delete columns in a table, create an image by binning (histogramming) 2 table columns,
and convert IRAF format *.imh or raw binary data files into FITS images.


simple file copy
fitscopy in.fit out.fit

stdin to stdout
fitscopy - -

copy a subimage
fitscopy in.fit[11:50,21:60] out.fit

IRAF image to FITS
fitscopy iniraf.imh out.fit

raw array to FITS
fitscopy in.dat[i512,512] out.fit

copy rows with pi>35
fitscopy in.fit[events][pi>35] out.fit

bin an image
fitscopy in.fit[events][bin X,Y] out.fit

new x column
fitscopy in.fit[events][col x=.9*y] out.fit

time filter
fitscopy in.fit[events][gtifilter()] out.fit

spatial filter
fitscopy in.fit[2][regfilter("pow.reg")] out.fit

Note that it may be necessary to enclose the input file name in single quote characters on
the Unix command line.
