Scaled column data type, repeat value, width


[dtype,repeat,width] = getColType(fptr,colnum)


[dtype,repeat,width] = getColType(fptr,colnum) returns the data type, vector repeat value, and the width in bytes of a column in an ASCII or binary table.

This function corresponds to the fits_get_coltypell (ffgtclll) function in the CFITSIO library C API.

fptr = fits.openFile('tst0012.fits');
[dtype,repeat,width] = fits.getColType(fptr,5);
