       MakeProfiles - make standard 2D profiles	on an image

       astmkprof [OPTION...] [Options] [Catalog]

       MakeProfiles  is	 part  of  GNU Astronomy Utilities 0.12.  MakeProfiles
       will create a FITS image	containing any	number	of  mock  astronomical
       profiles	based on an input catalog. All the profiles will be built from
       the center outwards. First by Monte Carlo integration, then  using  the
       central	pixel  position. The tolerance level specifies when the	switch
       will occur.

       For more	information, please run	any of the following commands. In par-
       ticular	the  second contains a very comprehensive explanation of Make-
       Profiles's invocation: expected input(s), output(s),  and  a  full  de-
       scription of all	the options.

       All options and their values:
	      $	astmkprof -P

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
	      $	info astmkprof

       Full section in manual/book:
	      $	info MakeProfiles

       Full Gnuastro manual/book:
	      $	info gnuastro

       If you couldn't find your answer	in the manual, you can get direct help
       from experienced	Gnuastro users and developers. For  more  information,
       please run:
