Syntax

copyHDU(infptr,outfptr)

Description

copyHDU(infptr,outfptr) copies the current HDU from the FITS file associated with infptr and appends it to the end of the FITS file associated with outfptr.

This function corresponds to the fits_copy_hdu (ffcopy) function in the CFITSIO library C API.

Examples

Copy the first, third, and fifth HDUs from one file to another.

import matlab.io.*
infptr = fits.openFile('tst0012.fits');
outfptr = fits.createFile('myfile.fits');
fits.copyHDU(infptr,outfptr);
fits.movAbsHDU(infptr,3);
fits.copyHDU(infptr,outfptr);
fits.movAbsHDU(infptr,5);
fits.copyHDU(infptr,outfptr);
fits.closeFile(infptr);
fits.closeFile(outfptr);
fitsdisp('tst0012.fits','mode','min','index',[1 3 5]);
fitsdisp('myfile.fits','mode','min');
