AST_PUTFITS

Store a FITS header card in a FitsChan

Description:

This routine stores a FITS header card in a FitsChan. The card is either inserted before the current card (identified by the Card attribute), or over-writes the current card, as required.

Invocation

CALL AST_PUTFITS( THIS, CARD, OVERWRITE, STATUS )

Arguments

THIS = INTEGER (Given)
Pointer to the FitsChan.
CARD = CHARACTER ( 80 ) (Given)
A character string string containing the FITS card to be stored. No more than 80 characters will be used from this string.
OVERWRITE = LOGICAL (Given)
If this value is .FALSE., the new card is inserted in front of the current card in the FitsChan (as identified by the initial value of the Card attribute). If it is .TRUE., the new card replaces the current card. In either case, the Card attribute is then incremented by one so that it subsequently identifies the card following the one stored.
STATUS = INTEGER (Given and Returned)
The global status.
