The dimensions of the NDFs may be different, and indeed so may their dimensionalities. The output NDF can be constrained to have the dimensions of the base NDF, so the pasted NDFs are clipped. Normally, the output NDF will have dimensions such that all the input NDFs are accommodated in full.
Bad values in the pasted NDFs are by default transparent, so the underlying data are not replaced during the copying.
Input NDFs can be shifted in pixel space before pasting them into the output NDF (see Parameter SHIFT).
FALSEthe output NDF just accommodates all the input NDFs. If CONFINE is
TRUE, the output NDF’s dimensions matches those of the base NDF.
The group should be given as a comma-separated list, in which each list element can be:
an NDF name, optionally containing wild-cards and/or regular expressions
the name of a text file, preceded by an up-arrow character
Each line in the text file should contain a comma-separated list of elements, each of
which can in turn be an NDF name (with optional wild-cards, etc.), or another file
specification (preceded by an up-arrow). Comments can be included in the file by
commencing lines with a hash character
If the value supplied for this parameter ends with a hyphen
"-", then you are
re-prompted for further input until a value is given which does not end with a hyphen.
All the NDFs given in this way are concatenated into a single group.
The group can contain no more than 1000 names.
!) indicates that there is no NDF. NDFs P2 to P25 are defaulted to
!. At least one NDF must be pasted, therefore P1 may not be null.
P1 to P25 are ignored if the group specified through Parameter IN comprises more than one NDF.
!) is supplied, no shifts are applied.
!) propagates the title from the base NDF to the output NDF.
TRUE, bad values within the pasted NDFs are not copied to the output NDF as if the bad values were transparent. If TRANSP is
FALSE, all values are copied during the paste and a bad value will obscure an underlying value.
shapes.lisin the order given on the NDF called canvas. Bad values are transparent. The bounds of NDF collage match those of NDF canvas.
planescontains a list of two-dimensional NDFs, this arranges them into a cube, one behind the other.
This routine correctly processes the AXIS, DATA, QUALITY, VARIANCE, LABEL, TITLE, UNITS, WCS, and HISTORY, components of an NDF data structure and propagates all extensions. Propagation is from the base NDF.
All non-complex numeric data types can be handled.
Any number of NDF dimensions is supported.
