NAME
       Astro::FITS::Header::CFITSIO - Manipulates FITS headers from a FITS
       file

SYNOPSIS
	 use Astro::FITS::Header::CFITSIO;

	 $header = new Astro::FITS::Header::CFITSIO( Cards => \@array );
	 $header = new Astro::FITS::Header::CFITSIO( File => $file );
	 $header = new Astro::FITS::Header::CFITSIO( fitsID => $ifits );

	 $header->writehdr( File => $file );
	 $header->writehdr( fitsID => $ifits );

DESCRIPTION
       This module makes use of	the CFITSIO module to read and write directly
       to a FITS HDU.

       It stores information about a FITS header block in an object. Takes an
       hash as an argument, with either	an array reference pointing to an
       array of	FITS header cards, or a	filename, or (alternatively) and FITS
       identifier.

REVISION
       $Id$

METHODS
       configure
	   Reads a FITS	header from a FITS HDU

	     $header->configure( Cards => \@cards );
	     $header->configure( fitsID	=> $ifits );
	     $header->configure( File => $file );
	     $header->configure( File => $file,	ReadOnly => $bool );

	   Accepts an FITS identifier or a filename. If	both fitsID and	File
	   keys	exist, fitsID key takes	priority.

	   If "File" is	specified, the file is normally	opened in ReadWrite
	   mode.  The "ReadOnly" argument takes	a boolean value	which
	   determines whether the file is opened ReadOnly.

       writehdr
	   Write a FITS	header to a FITS file

	     $header->writehdr(	File =>	$file );
	     $header->writehdr(	fitsID => $ifits );

	   Its accepts a FITS identifier or a filename.	If both	fitsID and
	   File	keys exist, fitsID key takes priority.

	   Returns undef on error, true	if the header was written
	   successfully.

NOTES
       This module requires Pete Ratzlaff's Astro::FITS::CFITSIO module, and
       William Pence's "cfitsio" subroutine library (v2.1 or greater).
