Fxplf will create a new BINTABLE extension on a new or existent FITS file. The pl data is located in the heap area of the extension and the BINTABLE data consists of one entry with 2 integers. The first integer is the number of 16bits integers in the heap and the second is the offset from the last BINTABLE data block.
If the output FITS file does not exist, a dummy primary FITS header is created before appending the BINTABLE extension.
1. To put together all of the Pixel list files starting with f into one new output FITS file.
