r2df -- convert CTIO 2D-Frutti image files to IRAF image files


r2df r2df_file file_list iraf_file


The 2D-Frutti data source. If the data source is a disk file or an explict tape file specification of the form mt*[n] where n is a file number then only that file is converted. If the general tape device name is given, i.e. mta, mtb800, etc, then the files specified by the files parameter will be read from the tape.
The files to be read from a tape are specified by the file_list string. The string can consist of any sequence of file numbers separated by at least one of comma, or dash. A dash specifies a range of files. For example the string


will convert the files 1 through 8.

The IRAF image file which will receive the 2D-Frutti data if the make_image parameter switch is set. For tape files specified by the file_list parameter the filename will be used as a prefix and the file number will be appended. Otherwise, the file will be named as specified. Thus, reading files 1 and 3 from a 2D-Frutti tape with a filename of data will produce the files data1 and data3. It is legal to use a null filename.
make_image = yes
This switch determines if 2D-Frutti image data is converted to an IRAF image file. This switch is set to no to obtain just header information with the long_header or short_header switches.
long_header = no
If this switch is set the full 2D-Frutti header is printed on standard output.
short_header = yes
If this switch is set only the output filename, the title string, and the image dimensions are printed.
standard_format = yes
The 2D-Frutti standard format has least significant byte first. Some 2D-Frutti data, however, does not follow this byte order convention. Thus, to read the non-standard 2D-Frutti data this parameter is set to no.
datatype = "s"
The IRAF image file may be of a different data type than 2D-Frutti image data. The data type may be specified as s for short, l for long, r for real, and d for double. The user must beware of truncation problems if an inappropriate data type is specified. If an incorrect data_type or a null string is given for this parameter then a default data type is used which is the appropriate minimum size for the input pixel values.
offset = 0
Offset is an integer parameter specifying the offset to the tape file number appended to iraf_file. For example if the user specifies offset = 100, iraf_file = "r2d" and file_list = "1-3", the output file names produced will be "r2d101", "r2d102" and "r2d103" respectively, instead of "r2d001", "r2d002" and "r2d003".


Cerro Tololo 2D-Frutti format image data is read from the specified source; either a disk file or magnetic tape. The 2D-Frutti header may optionally be printed on the standard output as either a full listing or a short description. Image data may optionally be converted to an IRAF image of specified data type.


1. Convert a 2D-Frutti image tape to a set of IRAF images.
