NAME catcube - cube/image concatenation to one cube SYNOPSIS catcube [options] [-o output] <cube1> [cube2] ... [cube n] DESCRIPTION catcube creates an output cube that is sum on the z-axis of all other cubes given on command line in order of appearance from left to right. e.g. catcube -o outcube cube.001 cube.002 image.001 cube.003 will create an output cube 'outcube' with planes consisting of planes cube.001 first, then planes of cube.002, then image.001, then cube.003. All planes shall have the same size (width, height). The pixel depth of the output cube is the most restrictive, i.e. the one which needs the highest amount of bits. catcube accepts jokers on command line : > catcube -o output.fits ADO*.fits The default output name is 'cat.fits'. The -o option may be specified anywhere on the command line. Example: the follow- ing lines are strictly equivalent: catcube f0001 f0002 -o output.fits f003 f004 catcube -o output.fits f0001 f0002 f003 f004 catcube f0001 f0002 f003 f004 -o output.fits FILES Input files shall all comply with FITS format Output file pixel type is the highest input pixel type encountered. The original FITS header of the first given FITS file on command line is conserved along, except for the following keywords: NAXIS, NAXISn, BITPIX, BSCALE, BZERO, which are related to the newly created file. HISTORY keywords are appended to the FITS header to indicate the eclipse process modifications.
