Astro::FITS::Header::AUser)Contributed Perl DocumenAstro::FITS::Header::AST(3)

NAME
       Astro::FITS::Header::AST	- Manipulates FITS headers from	an AST object

SYNOPSIS
	 use Astro::FITS::Header::AST;

	 $header = new Astro::FITS::Header::AST( FrameSet => $wcsinfo );
	 $header = new Astro::FITS::Header::AST( FrameSet => $wcsinfo,
						 Encoding => 'FITS-IRAF' );

	 $header = new Astro::FITS::Header::AST( Cards => \@cards );

DESCRIPTION
       This module makes use of	the Starlink::AST module to read the FITS HDU
       from an AST FrameSet object.

       It stores information about a FITS header block in an object. Takes an
       hash as an argument, with an array reference pointing to	an
       Starlink::AST FramSet object.

REVISION
       $Id$

METHODS
       configure
	   Reads a FITS	header from a Starlink::AST FrameSet object

	     $header->configure( FrameSet => $wcsinfo );

	   Base	class initialisation also works:

	     $header->configure( Cards => \@cards );

	   Accepts a reference to an Starlink::AST FrameSet object.

	   If a	specific encoding is required, this can	be specified using the
	   Encoding argument. Default is FITS-WCS if no	Encoding is given.
	   Note	that not all framesets can be encoded using FITS-WCS.

	     $header->configure( FrameSet => $wcsinfo, Encoding	=> "Native" );

	   If Encoding is specified but	undefined, the default will be decided
	   by AST.
