Diffs from version 3.0 to 3.1
Support has been added for this ISAAC calibration template. See is_illum manual page.
Support has been added for this ISAAC calibration template. See is_darks manual page.
Support has been added for this ISAAC calibration template. See is_detlin manual page.
hierarch28 allows to replace the infamous HIERARCH ESO keywords by normal 8-char FITS keywords. Have a look at hierarch28 manual page.
The iofits command has been completely re-implemented, it is now independent from the rest of the library. You can take the source code and recompile it wherever you want without having eclipse around. What's more: the new implementation makes heavy use of optimized conversion routines and is deadly fast! Have a look at iofits manual page.
It is now possible to change the kernel used by the shiftadd command for resampling. It follows the same syntax as for the warping command. Have a look at shiftadd manual page and warping manual page.
A new option in the image generator: --poly2 allows to create images of 2d surfaces which equation is a second-degree polynomial in x and y. Soon there will be also a possibility to generate any kind of polynomial surface from the command-line. Have a look at the imgen manual page.
The photometry routines in eclipse have been deeply optimized in speed. Have a try!
Lots of efforts have been brought to establish an efficient and general memory handling scheme into eclipse. File loading has been considerably enhanced with heavy use of virtual memory routines in POSIX1.b. Memory leaks are also detected quite efficiently now, which allows to solve for the most serious bugs in memory handling.
The SFL library has corrected some bugs, eclipse has upgraded to version 1.9 of this library. For more information about the SFL library, consult Imatix home page.
The gnuplot interfaces make use of a much faster interface to talk to this plotting utility. It is not required to have gnuplot to use eclipse, and very few commands actually make use of these pipes, but it should be used more and more in the near future.
Lots of curve fitting routines in ANSI C have been added to the library. They are used in the latest ISAAC pipeline tools.
A memory leak was found and corrected in the default FITS reader. It should not have affected any result, but may have explained some core dumps on heavily loaded machines.
The latest upgrade of the FITS reader to support HIERARCH ESO keywords actually broke down some keyword processing for Adonis Fabry-Perot files. Corrected.
dfits recognized as end of header any keyword starting with the 3 letters END such as ENDING=23 for example. The effect of this bug is that dfits did not display the whole header in this case. Corrected.
When a cross-correlation tool (shiftadd, jitter) needed to load offsets from an ASCII file, it sometimes failed on buggous syntax. Corrected.
The -o option for detpeak did not read its arguments. Now it does...
A leak in image statistics computation has been corrected. It did not have any effect on the results.
The part of the library in charge of computing FWHMs was sometimes sloppy in terms of memory accesses, which caused to core dump sometimes. The routines have been rewritten and are working fine now. This did not affect the results of the FWHM routine.
