Picard created a new topic ' new cfitsio release' in the forum. 6 days ago

for interested persons, a new release of cfitio was published (3.47). Since the last official release of may 2018 (3.45), an intermediate version was also published (3.46).

you could take it from git repository (git clone github.com/healpy/cfitsio.git ) or directly from the heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/fitsio/ .


- Added set of drivers for performing ftps file transfers.

- Tile sizes for compression may now be specified for any pair of
axes, where previously 2D tiles where limited to just X and y.

- Fix to ffgsky and ffgkls functions for case of keyword with long
string values where the final CONTINUE statement ended with '&'.
If the final CONTINUE also contained a comment, it was being
repeated twice when passed back through the 'comm' argument.

- Fix made to ffedit_columns() for case of multiple col filters
containing wildcards. Only the first filter was being searched.

- fits_copy_rows (ffcprw) can now handle 'P'-type variable-length
columns.

- Fix made to an obscure case in fits_modify_vector_len, where a
wrongly issued EOF error may occur.

- Added internal fffvcl() function.

Version 3.46 - Oct 2018 (Ftools release)

- Improved the algorithm for ensuring no tile dimensions are smaller
than 4 pixels for HCOMPRESS compression.

- Added new functions intended to assist in diagnosing (primarily
https) download issues: fits_show_download_progress,
fits_get_timeout, fits_set_timeout.

- Added the '-O <file>' option to fpack, which previously existed only
for funpack. Also added fpack/funpack auto-removal of .bz2 suffix
equivalent to what existed for .gz.

- For the fpack '-table' cases, warning message is now sent to stderr
instead of stdout. This is to allow users to pipe the results from
stdout in valid FITS format. (The warning message is otherwise placed
at the start of the FITS file and therefore corrupts it.)

- Fix made to the '-P' file prefix option in funpack.

- Added wildcard deletion syntax for columns, i.e. -COLNAM* will delete
the first matching column as always; -COLNAM*+ will delete all matching
columns (or none); exact symmetry with the keyword deletion syntax.

Picard created a new topic ' Issue with indi_eval' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi all,

I try to write a script that do a complete shutdown of my observatory. I use indi_getprop, indi_setprop and indi_eval for doing some action before the shutdown.

when i use indi_eval like this :
indi_eval -t 0 -w '"CCD Simulator.CCD_EXPOSURE._STATE"==1'
it do the job either in command line or in a shell script.

But, if i want use the same command with variable like this :

export INDI_CCD="CCD Simulator"
indi_eval -t 0 -wv '"$INDI_CCD.CCD_EXPOSURE._STATE"==1'

Compiling: "$INDI_CCD.CCD_EXPOSURE._STATE"==1
Connected to localhost on port 7624
sending getProperties for $INDI_CCD


it doesn't work because it cannot resolve the INDI_CCD variable. The problem is du to the single quote. I don't know how to resolve this issue.

Does some people have ever had this issue and how to correct it ?

in the ccd simulator, the image compression doesn't work if you save on local (on remote server). The image doesn't saved in fits.fz but only in fits.

it's ok when i upload to the client

I doesn't tried with a real camera (like EOS).

Hello,

I need your help. I activated the full screen mode on kstars, but from since i cannot out from it. I tried to activate/desactivate the full screen mode on the menu view but nothing does. Anyone know a trick to restore the kstars window to the normal size ?

Thank you.
