OIFITS reader

The primary access to $\cal OYST\!ER $procedures is via the OIFITS reader (get_oifits), which stores the data internally in the scans and other auxilliary IDL structures. Alternatively, VLTI MIDI and AMBER data can be reduced using the MyMidiGui and MyAmberGui front ends (http://www.eso.org/$\sim$chummel/midi/mymidigui/mymidigui.html,
http://www.eso.org/$\sim$chummel/amber/myambergui/myambergui.html). These provide easy to use GUIs for the externally developed data reduction softwares (MIA+EWS and amdlib), and automatically store data internally using $\cal OYST\!ER $'s data structures, as well as write data to disk in OIFITS format.

For data to be stored internally in $\cal OYST\!ER $many requirements are to be met, mostly for historical reasons of a data package first released over 15 years ago. These procedures are handled in a mostly transparent way, but need to be kept in mind in case of adaptations of the code to specific applications. Here we point out relevant ``pecularities'' of $\cal OYST\!ER $.
