SUBSTITUTE

Replaces all occurrences of a given value in an NDF array with another value

Description:

This application changes all pixels that have a defined value in an NDF  with an alternate value. Other values are unchanged. The number of replacements is reported.

Usage:

substitute in out oldval newval [comp]

Parameters:

COMP = LITERAL (Read)
The components whose values are to be substituted. It may be "Data", "Error", "Variance", or "All". The last of the options forces substitution in both the data and variance arrays. This parameter is ignored if the data array is the only array component within the NDF. ["Data"]
IN = NDF (Read)
Input NDF structure containing the data and/or variance array to have some of its elements substituted.
OUT = NDF (Write)
Output NDF structure containing the data and/or variance array that is a copy of the input array, but with replacemeent values substituted.
NEWVAL = _DOUBLE (Read)
The value to replace occurrences of OLDVAL. It must lie within the minimum and maximum values of the data type of the array with higher precision. The new value is converted to data type of the array being converted before the search begins. The suggested default is the current value.
OLDVAL = _DOUBLE (Read)
The element value to be replaced. The same value is substituted in both the data and variance arrays when COMP="All". It must lie within the minimum and maximum values of the data type of the array with higher precision. The replacement value is converted to data type of the array being converted before the search begins. The suggested default is the current value.
TITLE = LITERAL (Read)
Title for the output NDF structure. A null value (!) propagates the title from the input NDF to the output NDF. [!]

Examples:

substitute aa bb 1 0
This copies the NDF called aa to the NDF bb, except that any pixels with value 1 in aa are altered to have value 0 in bb.
substitute aa bb oldval=1 newval=0 comp=v
As above except the substitution occurs to the variance values.
substitute in=saturn out=saturn5 oldval=2.5 newval=5 comp=All
This copies the NDF called saturn to the NDF saturn5, except that any elements in the data and variance arrays that have value 2.5 are altered to have value 5 in saturn5.
