Summary: Library for manipulating FITS data files
CFITSIO is a library of C and Fortran subroutines for reading and writing data
files in FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) data format. CFITSIO provides
simple high-level routines for reading and writing FITS files that insulate the
programmer from the internal complexities of the FITS format. CFITSIO also
provides many advanced features for manipulating and filtering the information
in FITS files.






* Sun Aug 16 2020 Dirk Mueller <>
  - update to 3.490:
    - Fix to imcompress.c.  It now turns off quantization if ZSCALE
      and ZZERO columns are missing.  Treatment will be the same as
      if ZQUANTIZ were set to 'NONE', even if ZQUANTIZ is present
      and set to something else.
    - Added mutex to fits_execute_template() function so that the
      creation of files using ASCII templates will be thread safe.
    - In fpack when using -table flag, replaced warning message with a
      more detailed description mentioning FITS format update.
    - Added flag to CMake builds to disable curl dependency.  Also
      only add CURL_LIBRARIES to CMake link target if curl is found.
    - Minor adjustment to download progress output.
* Mon Jul 06 2020 Benjamin Greiner <>
  - Update to version 3.480:
    * Now can handle parentheses in path names rather than
      automatically interpreting them as output file specifiers.
    * Fixed bug in imcompress.c that wasn't properly handling
      conversion between float and double types when reading from a
      gzip compressed float or double image.
    * Fixed bug that was preventing use of bracket and parentheses
      symbols in pathnames when opening multiple READWRITE files,
      even when requesting no-extended-syntax usage. *This fix
      necessitates a library interface version number change.
    * Fixed bug in ffmnhd / fits_movnam_hdu to properly handle
      wildcard syntax.
    * Fixed bug in fits_open_extlist to handle filename[EXT] syntax
      properly.  The hdutype parameter may now be null.  More
      documentaion for this function is in cfitsio.tex.
    * Added new function fits_copy_hdutab to create a new table with
      the same structure as an existing table.
    * fits_copy_col / ffcpcl handles long long integer data types
      more natively to prevent precision loss.
    * histo.c routines now recognize integer columns that have been
      scaled by TSCALn keywords and may be closer to floating point
    * Added backward compatibility for very old Rice compressed files
      which were not using the ZVAL2 keyword in the way that later
      became standard.
    * Change made to to prevent forcing downstream
      libraries to link against cfitsio's dependencies when using
* Sat Oct 05 2019 Asterios Dramis <>
  - Update to version 3.470:
    * Added set of drivers for performing ftps file transfers.
    * Tile sizes for compression may now be specified for any pair of
      axes, where previously 2D tiles where limited to just X and y.
    * Fix to ffgsky and ffgkls functions for case of keyword with
      long string values where the final CONTINUE statement ended
      with '&'. If the final CONTINUE also contained a comment, it
      was being repeated twice when passed back through the 'comm'
    * Fix made to ffedit_columns() for case of multiple col filters
      containing wildcards.  Only the first filter was being
    * fits_copy_rows (ffcprw) can now handle 'P'-type variable-length
    * Fix made to an obscure case in fits_modify_vector_len, where a
      wrongly issued EOF error may occur.
    * Added internal fffvcl() function.
    From version 3.460 (Ftools release):
    * Improved the algorithm for ensuring no tile dimensions are
      smaller than 4 pixels for HCOMPRESS compression.
    * Added new functions intended to assist in diagnosing (primarily
      https) download issues: fits_show_download_progress,
      fits_get_timeout, fits_set_timeout.
    * Added the '-O <file>' option to fpack, which previously existed
      only for funpack.  Also added fpack/funpack auto-removal of
      .bz2 suffix equivalent to what existed for .gz.
    * For the fpack '-table' cases, warning message is now sent to
      stderr instead of stdout.  This is to allow users to pipe the
      results from stdout in valid FITS format.  (The warning message
      is otherwise placed at the start of the FITS file and therefore
      corrupts it.)
    * Fix made to the '-P' file prefix option in funpack.
    * Added wildcard deletion syntax for columns, i.e. -COLNAM* will
      delete the first matching column as always; -COLNAM*+ will
      delete all matching columns (or none); exact symmetry with the
      keyword deletion syntax.
  - Rebased cfitsio-zlib.patch to apply cleanly.
* Sat Dec 01 2018 Asterios Dramis <>
  - Update to version 3.450:
    * New support for reading and writing unsigned long long
      datatypes. This includes 'implicit datatype conversion' between
      the unsigned long long datatype and all the other datatypes.
    * Increased the hardcoded NMAXFILES setting for maximum number of
      open files from 1000 to 10000.
    * Bug fix to fits_calc_binning wrapper function, which wasn't
      filling in the returned float variables.
    * Fixed a parsing bug for image subsection and column binning
      range specifiers that was introduced in v3.44.
* Mon Apr 16 2018
  - Update to version 3.440:
    * This release primarily patches security vulnerabilities.  We
      strongly encourage this upgrade, particularly for those running
      CFITSIO in web accessible applications.
    * Enhancement to 'template' and 'colfilter' functionality.  It is
      now possible to delete multiple keywords using wildcard syntax.
      See "Column and Keyword Filtering Specification" section of
      manual for details.
    * histo.c uses double precision internally for all floating point
      binning; new double-precision subroutines fits_calc_binningd(),
      fits_rebin_wcsd(), and fits_make_histd(); existing
      single-precision histogram functions still work but convert
      values to double-precision internally.
    * new subroutine fits_copy_cols() / ffccls() to copy multiple
    * Fix in imcompress.c for HCOMPRESS and PLIO compression of
      unsigned short integers.
    * Fix to fits_insert_card(ffikey).  It had wrongly been
      capitalizing letters that appeared before an '=' sign on a
      CONTINUE line.
  - Rebased cfitsio-zlib.patch to apply cleanly.
* Wed Apr 11 2018
  - Update to version 3.430:
    * Fixed security vulnerabilities (bsc#1088590, CVE-2018-1000166).
    * Calls to https driver functions in cfileio.c need to be macro-
      protected by the HAVE_NET_SERVICES variable (as are the http
      and ftp driver function calls).  Otherwise CMake builds on
      native Windows will fail since drvrnet.o is left empty.
    * Bug fix to ffmvec function.  Should be resetting a local colptr
      variable after making a call to ffiblk (which can reallocate
    * Ignore any attempted request to not quantize an image before
      compressing it if the image has integer datatype pixels.
    * Improved error message construction throughout CFITSIO.
  - Package licence file as license, not doc (boo#1082318).
* Thu Feb 08 2018
  - Update to version 3.420:
    * added https support to the collection of drivers handled in
      cfileio.c and drvrnet.c.  This also handles the case where http
      transfers are rerouted to https.  Note that this enhancement
      introduces a dependency on the libcurl development package.  If
      this package is absent, CFITSIO will still build but will not
      have https capability.
    * made fix to imcomp_init_table function in imcompress.c.  It now
      writes ZSIMPLE keyword only to a compressed image that will be
      placed in the primary header.
    * fix made to fits_get_col_display_width for case of a vector
      column of strings.
    * in ftp_open_network and in ftp_file_exist, added code to
      repeatedly attempt to make a ftp connection if the ftp server
      does not respond to the first request. (some ftp servers don't
      appear to be 100% reliable).
    * in drvrnet.c added many calls to 'fclose' to close unneeded
      files, to avoid exceeding the maximum allowed number of files
      that can be open at once.
    * made substantial changes to the ftp_checkfile and
      http_checkfile routines to streamline the process of checking
      for the existence of a .gz or .Z compressed version of the file
      before opening the uncompressed file (when using http or ftp to
      open the file).
    * modified the code in ftp_open_network to send "\r\n" as
      end-of-line characters instead of just "\n".  Some ftp servers
      (in particular, at now require both
      characters, otherwise the network connection simply hangs.
    * modified the http_open_network routine to handle HTTP 301 or
      302 redirects to a FTP url.  This is needed to support the new
      configuration on the heasarc HTTP server which sometimes
      redirects http URLS to a ftp URL.
  - Added new build requirement libcurl-devel.
* Tue Feb 28 2017
  - Update to version 3.410:
    * The change made in version 3.40 to include strings.h caused
      problems on Windows (and other) platforms, so this change was
      backed out. The reason for including it was to define the
      strcasecmp and strcasencmp functions, so as an alternative, new
      equivalent functions called fits_strcasecmp and
      fits_strncasecmp have been added to a substitute.
      All the previous calls to the str[n]casecmp functions have been
      changed to now call fits_str[n]casecmp. In addition, the
      previously defined ngp_strcasecmp function (in grparser.c) has
      been removed and the calls to it have been changed to
    * The speed.c utility program was changed to correctly call
      the gettimeofday function with a NULL second arguement.
    From version 3.400:
    * fixed a bug when writing long string keywords with the CONTINUE
      convention which caused the CONTINUE'd strings to only be 16
      characters long, instead of using up all the available space in
      the 80-character header record.
    * fixed a missing 'defined' keyword in fitsio.h.
    * replaced all calls to strtok (which is not threadsafe) with a
      new ffstrtok function which internally calls the threadsafe
      strtok_r function.  One byproduct of this change is that
      <strings.h> must also be included in several of the C source
      code files.
    * modified the ffphbn function in putkey.c to support TFORM
      specifiers that use lowercase 'p' (instead of uppercase) when
      referring to a variable-length array column.
    * modified the lexical parser in eval.y and eval_y.c to support
      bit array columns (with TFORMn = 'X') with greater than 256
      elements. Fix to bitcmp function:  The internal 'stream' array
      is now allocated dynamically rather than statically fixed at
      size 256. This was failing when users attempted a row filtering
      of a bitcol that was wider than 256X. In bitlgte, bitand, and
      bitor functions, replaced static stream[256] array allocation
      with dynamic allocation.
    * modified the ffiter function in putcol.c to fix a problem which
      could cause the iterator function to incorrectly deal with null
      values.  This only affected TLONG type columns in cases where
      sizeof(long) = 8, as well as for TLONGLONG type columns.
    * Fix made to uncompress2mem function in zcomprss.c for case
      where output uncompressed file expands to over the 2^32 (4Gb)
      limit.  It now checks for this case at the start, and
      implements a 4Gb paging system through the output buffer.  The
      problem was specifically caused by the d_stream.avail_out
      member being of 4-byte type uInt, and thus unable to handle any
      memory position values above 4Gb.
    * fixed a bug in fpackutil.c when using the -i2f (integer to
      float) option in fpack to compress an integer image that is
      scaled with non-default values for BSCALE and BZERO. This
      required an additional call to ffrhdu to reset the internal
      structures that describe the input FITS file.
    * modified fits_uncompress_table in imcompress.c to silently
      ignore the ZTILELEN keyword value if it larger than the number
      of rows in the table
    * Tweak strcasecmp/strncasecmp ifdefs to exclude 64-bit MINGW
      environment, as it does not lack those functions. (eval_l.c,
    * CMakeLists.txt: Set M_LIB to "" for MINGW build environment (in
      addition to MSVC).
    * Add *.dSYM (non-XCode gcc leftovers on Macs) to
      clean list.  Install libs by name rather than using a wildcard.
    * configure: Fix rpath token usage for XCode vs. non-XCode gcc on
  - Rebased cfitsio-zlib.patch to apply cleanly.
* Sun Jun 26 2016
  - Update to version 3.390:
    * Lots of changes - see changes.txt for details.
  - Rebased cfitsio-zlib.patch to apply cleanly.
* Thu Dec 25 2014
  - Update to version 3.370
    + Added configure options to support reading bzip2 compressed FITS files.
      This depends on having the bzlib library installed on the local machine.
    + Replaced the random Gaussian and Poissonian distribution functions with
      new code written by Craig Markwardt derived from public domain C++ functions
    + Patched fitsio2.h to support CFITSIO on AArch64 (64-bit ARM)
      architecture (both big and little endian).
    + Fixed bug in fpackutil.c that caused fpack to exit prematurely if
      the FZALGOR directive keyword was present in the HDU header.
  - Remove obsolete patches; fixed on upstream release
    + aarch64-support.patch
    + ppc64le-support.patch
* Sun Feb 16 2014
  - Update to version 3.360:
    * added 9 Dec: small change to the fileseek function in drvrfile.c to
      support large files > 2 GB when building CFITSIO with MinGW on Windows
    * reorganized the CFITSIO code directory structure; added a 'docs'
      subdirectory for all the documentation, and a 'zlib' directory
      for the zlib/gzip file compression code.
    * made major changes to the compression code for FITS binary table
      to support all types of columns, including variable-length arrays.
      This code is mainly used via the fpack and funpack programs.
    * increased the number of FITS files that can be opened as one
      time to 1000, as defined by NMAXFILES in fitsio2.h.
    * made small configuration changes to, configure,
      fitsio.h, and drvrfile.c to support large files (64-bit file
      offsets} when using the mingw-w64 compiler (provided by
      Benjamin Gilbert).
    * made small change to fits_delete_file to more completely ignore
      any non-zero input status value.
    * fixed a logic error in a 'if' test when parsing a keyword name
      in the ngp_keyword_is_write function in grparser.c (provided
      by David Binderman).
    * when specifying the image compression parameters as part of the
      compressed image file name (using the "[compress]" qualifier
      after the name of the file), the quantization level value, if
      specified, was not being recognized by the CFITSIO compression
      routines. The image would always be compressed with the default
      quantization level of 4.0, regardless of what was specified.  This
      affected the imcopy program, and potentially other user-generated
      application programs that used this method to specify the
      compression parameters.  This bug did not affect fpack or
      funpack.   This was fixed in the imcomp_get_compressed_image_par
      routine in the imcompress.c file. (reported by Sean Peters)
    * defined a new CFITS_API macro in fitsio.h which is used to export the
      public symbols when building CFITSIO on Windows systems with CMake. This
      works in conjunction with the new Windows CMake build procedure that
      is described in the README.win32 file. This complete revamping of the
      way CFITSIO is built under Windows now supports building 64-bit
      versions of the library.  Thanks to Daniel Kaneider (Luminance HDR
      Team) for providing these new  CMake build procedures.
    * modified the way that the low-level file_create routine works when
      running in the Hera environment to ensure that the FITS file that is
      created is within the allow user data disk area.
    * modified fits_get_compression_type so that it does not return an error
      if the HDU is a normal FITS IMAGE extension, and is not a tile-compressed
    * modified the low-level ffgcl* and ffpcl* routines to ensure that they
      never try ro read or write more than 2**31 bytes from disk at one time,
      as might happen with very large images, to avoid integer overflow errors.
      Fix kindly provided by Fred Gutsche at NanoFocus AG (
    * modified so that doing 'make distclean' does not delete
      new config.sub and config.guess files that were recently added.
    * adopted a patch from Debian in zcompress.c to "define" the values of
      GZBUFSIZE and BUFFINCR, instead of exporting the symbols as 'int's.
  - Renamed libcfitsio-devel to cfitsio-devel and libcfitsio-devel-doc to
    cfitsio-devel-doc. Added appropriate Provides/Obsoletes entries.
  - Removed the following patches (fixed upstream):
    * implicit-pointer-decl.patch
    * no-return-in-nonvoid-function.patch
  - Rebased cfitsio-zlib.patch to apply cleanly.
* Sun Dec 15 2013
  - ppc64le-support.patch: Add support for ppc64le.
* Sun Jul 07 2013
  - Update to version 3.350:
    * fixed problem with the default tile size when compressing images with
      fpack using the Hcompress algorithm.
    * fixed returned value ("status" instead of "*status")
    * in imcompress.c, declared some arrays that are used to store the dimensions
      of the image from 'int' to 'long', to support very large images (at least
      on systems where sizeof(long) = 8),
    * modified the routines that convert a string value to a float or double
      to prevent them from returning a NaN or Inf value if the
      string is "NaN" or "Inf" (as can happen with gcc implementation of the
      strtod function).
    * removed/replaced the use of the assert() functions when locking or
      unlocking threads because they did not work correctly if NDEBUG is
    * made modifications to the way the command-line file filters are parsed to
      1) remove the 1024-character limit when specifying a column filter,
      2) fixed a potential character buffer-overflow risk in fits_get_token, and
      3) improved the parsing logic to remove any possible of confusing
      2 slash characters ("//") in the string as the beginning of a
      comment string.
    * modified configure and so that when building CFITSIO
      as a shared library on linux or Mac platforms, it will use the SONAME
      convention to indicate whether each new release of the CFITSIO
      library is binary-compatible with the previous version.  Application
      programs that link with the shared library will not need to be
      recompiled as long as the versions are compatible.  In practice,
      this means that the shared library binary file that is created (on
      Linux systems) will have a name like '', where I is the
      SONAME version number, J is the major CFITSIO version number (e.g. 3),
      and K is the minor CFITSIO version number (e.g., 34).  Two link
      files will also be created such that ->, and -> libcfitsio.I.J.K
      Application programs will still run correctly with the new version of
      CFITSIO as long as the 'I' version number remains the same, but the
      applications will fail to run if the 'I' number changes, thus alerting
      the user that the application must be rebuilt.
    * fixed bug in fits_insert_col when computing the new table row width
      when inserting a '1Q' variable length array column.
    * modified the image compression routines so that the output compressed
      image (stored in a FITS binary table) uses the '1Q' variable length
      array format (instead of '1P') when the input file is larger than 4 GB.
    * added support for "compression directive" keywords which indicate how
      that HDU should be compressed (e.g., which compression algorithm to use,
      what tiling pattern to use, etc.).  The values of these keywords will
      override the compression parameters that were specified on the command
      line when running the fpack FITS file compression program.
    * globally changed the variable and/or subroutine name "dither_offset"
      to "dither_seed" and "quantize_dither" to "quantize_method" so
      that the names more accurately reflects their purpose.
    * added support for a new SUBTRACTIVE_DITHER_2 method when compressing
      floating point images.  The only difference with the previous method
      is that pixels with a value exactly equal to 0.0 will not be dithered,
      and instead will be exactly preserved when the image is compressed.
    * added support for an alias of "RICE_ONE" for "RICE_1" as the value
      of the ZCMPTYPE keyword, which gives the name of the image compression
      algorithm.  This alias is used if the new SUBTRACTIVE_DITHER_2 option
      is used, to prevent old versions of funpack from creating a corrupted
      uncompressed image file.  Only newer versions of funpack will recognize
      this alias and be able to uncompress the image.
    * made performance improvement to fits_read_compressed_img so that
      when reading a section of an compressed image that includes only
      every nth pixel in some dimension, it will only uncompressed a tile
      if there are actually any pixels of interest in that tile.
    * fixed several issues with the beta FITS binary table compression code
      that is used by fpack:  added support for zero-length vector columns,
      made improvements to the output report when using the -T option in fpack,
      changed the default table compression method to 'Rice' instead of
      'Best', and now writes the 'ZTILELEN' keyword to document the number
      of table rows in each tile.
    * fixed error in ffbinit in calculating the total length of the binary
      table extension if the THEAP keyword was used to override the
      default starting location of the heap.
  - Removed cfitsio.patch (fixed upstream).
  - Rebased cfitsio-zlib.patch to apply cleanly.
  - Added a patch (no-return-in-nonvoid-function.patch) to fix "Program returns
    random data in a function" rpm post build check error.
* Sun Jun 16 2013
  - aarch64-support.patch: Add support for aarch64
* Wed Apr 03 2013
  - Update to version 3.340:
    * modified configure and to support cross-compiled cfitsio
      as a static library for Windows on a Linux platform using MXE
      ( - a build environment for mingw32. (contributed by
      Niels Kristian Bech Jensen)
    * added conditional compilation statementsfor the mingw32 environment in
      drvrfile.c because mingw32 does not include the ftello and fseeko
      functions. (contributed by Niels Kristian Bech Jensen)
    * fixed a potential bug in ffcpcl (routine to copy a column from one table
      to another table) when dealing with the rare case of a '0X' column (zero
      length bit column).
    * fixed an issue in the routines that update or modify string-valued
      keyword values, as a result of the change to ffc2s in the previous
      release.  These routines would exit with a 204 error status if the
      current value of the keyword to be updated or modified is null.
    * fixed typo in the previous modification that was intended to ignore
      numerical overflows in Hcompress when decompressing an image.
    * moved the 'startcol' static variable out of the ffgcnn routine and
      instead added it as a member of the 'FITSfile' structure that is defined
      in fitsio.h.  This removes a possible race condition in ffgcnn in
      multi-threaded environments.
    From version 3.330:
    * modified the imcomp_decompress_tile routine to ignore any numerical
      overflows that might occur when using Hcompress to decompress the
      image.  If Hcompress is used in its 'lossy' mode, the uncompressed
      image pixel values may slightly exceed the range of an integer*2
      variable. This is generally of no consequence, so we can safely ignore
      any overflows in this case and just clip the values to the legal range.
    * the default tiling pattern when writing a tile-compressed image
      has been changed.  The old behaviour was to compress the whole image
      as one single large tile.  This is often not optimal when dealing
      with large images, so the new default behavior is to treat each
      row of the image as one tile.  This is the same default behavior
      as in the standalone fpack program.  The default tile size can
      be overridden by calling fits_set_tile_dim.
    * fixed bug bug that resulted in a corrupted output FITS image when
      attempting to write a float or double array of values to a
      tile-compressed integer data type image.  CFITSIO does not support
      implicit data type conversion in this case and now correctly
      returns an appropriate error status.
    * modified ricecomp.c to define the nonzero_count lookup table as an
      external variable, rather then dynamically allocating it within the
      3 routines that use it.  This simplifies the code and eliminates the
      need for special thread locking and unlocking statements. (Thanks to
      Lars Kr. Lundin for this suggestion).
    * modifed how the uncompressed size of a gzipped file is computed in the
      mem_compress_open routine in drvrmem.c.  Since gzip only uses 4 bytes
      in the compressed file header to store the original file size, one may
      need to apply a modulo 2^32 byte correction in some cases.  The logic
      here was modified to allow for corner cases (e.g., very small files, and
      when running on 32-bit platforms that do not support files larger than
      2^31 bytes in size).
    * added new public routine to construct a 80 keyword record from the 3 input
      component strings, i.e, the keyword name string, the value string, and
      the comment string: fits_make_key/ffmkky.  (This was already an undocumented
      internal routine in previous versions of CFITSIO).
    * modified ffc2s so that if the input keyword value string is a null string,
      then it will return a VALUE_UNDEFINED (204) status value.  This makes it
      consistent with the behavior when attempting to read a null keyword
      (which has no value) as a logical or as a number (which also returns
      the 204 error).  This should only affect cases where the header keyword
      does not have an equal sign followed by a space character in columns 9
      and 10 of the header record.
    * Changed the "char *" parameter declarations to "const char *" in many
      of the routines (mainly the routines that modify or update keywords) to
      avoid compiler warnings or errors from C++ programs that tend to be more
      rigorous about using "const char *" when appropriate.
    * added support for caching uncompressed image tiles, so that the tile does
      not need to be uncompressed again if the application program wants
      to read more data from the same tile. This required changes to the
      main FITS file structure that is defined in fitsio.h, as well as
      changes to imcompress.c.
    * enhanced the previous modification to drvrfile.c to handle additional user
      cases when running in the HEASARC's Hera environment.
    From version 3.320:
    * fixed flaw in the way logical columns (TFORM = 'L') in binary tables
      were read which caused an illegal value of 1 in the column to be
      interpreted as a 'T' (TRUE) value.
    * extended the column filtering syntax in the CFITSIO file name parser to
      enable users and scripts to append new COMMENT or HISTORY keyword into the
      header of the filtered file (provided by Craig Markwardt).  For example,
      fcopy "infile.fits[col #HISTORY='Processed on 2012-10-05']" outfile.fits
      will append this header keyword: "HISTORY Processed on 2012-10-05"
    * small change to the code that opens and reads an ASCII region file to
      return an error if the file is empty.
    * fixed obscure sign propagation error when attempting to read the
      uncompressed size of a gzipped FITS file.  This resulted in a memory
      allocation error if the gzipped file had an uncompressed file
      size between 2^31 and 2^32 bytes.  Fix supplied by Gudlaugur Johannesson
  - Rebased cfitsio.patch to apply cleanly.
* Tue Jul 31 2012
  - Update to version 3.310:
    * Enhanced the CFITSIO column filtering syntax to allow the comma, in
      addition to the semi-colon, to be used to separate clauses, for example:
      [col X,Y;Z = max(X,Y)].  This was done because users are not allowed to
      enter the semi-colon character in the on-line Hera data processing
      system due to computer security concerns.
    * Enhanced the CFITSIO extended filename syntax to allow specifying image
      compression parameters (e.g. '[compress Rice]') when opening an existing
      FITS file with write access.  The specified compression parameters will
      be used by default if more images are appended to the existing file.
    * Modified drvrfile.c to do additional file secrity checks when CFITSIO
      is running within the HEASARC's Hera software system.  In this case
      CFITSIO will not allow FITS files to be created outside of the user's
      individual Hera data directory area.
    * Fixed an issue in fpack and funpack on Windows machines, caused by
      the fact that the 'rename' function behaves differently on Windows
      in that it does not clobber an existing file, as it does on Unix
    * Fixed bug in the way byte-swapping was being performed when writing
      integer*8 null values to an image or binary table column.
    * Added the missing macro definition for fffree to fitsio.h.
    * Modified the low level table read and write functions in getcol*.c and
      putcol*.c to remove the 32-bit limitation on the number of elements.
      These routines now support reading and writing more than 2**31 elements
      at one time. Thanks to Keh-Cheng Chu (Stanford U.) for the patch.
    * Modified so that the shared is linked against
      pthreads and libm.
  - Removed the fix to link the library to libpthread and libm from cfitsio.patch
    (fixed upstream).
  - Rebased cfitsio-zlib.patch to apply cleanly. Removed the linking of the
    programs (fpack and funpack) to libz from the patch (not needed).
  - Remove some more bundled zlib files from the package.
* Wed May 09 2012
  - Renamed package from libcfitsio0 to cfitsio.
  - Renamed subpackage libcfitsio-doc to libcfitsio-devel-doc (added obsoletes
    entry for libcfitsio-doc of previous openSUSE versions).
  - Suggest the libcfitsio-devel-doc package in libcfitsio-devel.
  - Removed the requirement for libcfitsio0 from libcfitsio-(devel)-doc (not
* Tue May 08 2012
  - Update to version 3.300:
    * Added new routine called fits_is_reentrant which returns 1 or 0 depending
      on whether or not CFITSIO was compiled with the -D_REENTRANT directive.
      This can be used to determine if it is safe to use CFITSIO in
      multi-threaded programs.
    * Implimented much faster byte-swapping algorithms in swapproc.c based on
      code provided by Julian Taylor at ESO, Garching.  These routines
      significantly improve the FITS image read and write speed (by more than a
      factor of 2 in some cases) on little-endian machines (e.g., Linux and
      Microsoft Windows running on x86 PCs) where byte-swapping is required.
      This has no effect on big-endian machines (e.g., Macs).  Even faster
      performance can be achieved in some cases by invoking the new
      "--enable-sse2" or "--enable-ssse3" configure options when building CFITSIO
      on machines that have CPUs and compilers that support the SSE2 and SSSE3
      machine instructions.
    * added additional support for implicit data type conversion in cases where
      the floating point image has been losslessly compressed with gzip.  The
      pixels in these compressed images can now be read back as arrays of short,
      int, and long integers as well as single and double precision
    * modified fitsio2.h and f77_wrap.h to recognize IBM System z mainframes by
      testing if __s390x__ or __s390__ is defined.
    * small change to ffgcrd in getkey.c so that it supports reading a blank
      keyword (e.g., a keyword whose name simply contains 8 space chracters).
    Bug Fixes
    * fixed a bug in imcomp_decompress_tile that caused the tile-compressed image
      to be uncompressed incorrectly (even though the tile-compressed image
      itself was written correctly) under the following specific conditions:
    - the original FITS image has a "float" datatype (R*4)
    - one or more of the image tiles cannot be compressed using the standard
      quantization method  and instead are losslessly compressed with gzip
    - the pixels in these tiles are not all equal to zero (this bug does
      affect tiles where all the pixels are equal to zero)
    - the program that is reading the compressed image uses CFITSIO's
      "implicit datatype conversion" feature to read the "float" image
      back into an array of "double" pixel values.
      If all these conditions are met, then the returned pixel values in the
      affected image tiles will be garbage, with values often ranging
      up to 10**34.  Note that this bug does not affect the fpack/funpack
      programs, because funpack does not use CFITSIO's implicit datatype
      conversion feature when uncompressing the image.
  - Replaced cfitsio-makefile.patch with cfitsio.patch (taken from Fedora). It's
    the same patch with the addition of linking libcfitsio with libpthread and
    libm (fixes possible errors with packages requiring libcfitsio0 and compiled
    with the "--as-needed" flag).
  - Added a patch (cfitsio-zlib.patch) to use system zlib (based on patches from
    Fedora and Debian). Added zlib-devel in build depencdencies.
  - Added a patch (implicit-pointer-decl.patch) to fix "implicit-pointer-decl"
    rpm post build check warning.
  - Moved "-lpthread" and added "-lz" in Libs.private: of cfitsio pkg-config
  - Removed "-fno-strict-aliasing" from CFLAGS.
  - Don't install static libraries.
* Mon Dec 05 2011
  - Set license to ISC, bnc#734865
* Sun Dec 04 2011
  - Fix SLE_11 build
* Sun Dec 04 2011
  - Update to version 3.290:
    * modified to allow configure to override the lib and include
      destination directories.
    * added (or restored actually) support for tile compression of 1-byte integer
      images in imcomp_compress_tile.  Support for that data type was overlooked
      during recent updates to this routine.
    * modified the fits_get_token command-line parsing routine to perform more
      rigorous checks to determine if the token can be interpreted as a number
      or not.
    * made small modification to fpack.c to not allow the -i2f option (convert
      image from integer to floating point) with the "-g -q 0" option (do lossless
      gzip compression).  It is more efficient to simply use the -g option alone.
    * made modifications to fitsio.h and drvrfile.c to support reading and
      writing large FITS files (> 2.1 GB) when building CFITSIO using
      Microsoft Visual C++ on Windows platforms.
    * added new WCS routine (ffgicsa) which returns the WCS keyword values
      for a particular WCS version ('A' - 'Z').
    Bug Fixes
    * fixed a problem with multi-threaded apps that open/close FITS files
      simultaneously by putting mutex locks around the call to
      fits_already_open and in fits_clear_Fptr.
    * fixed a bug when using the 'regfilter' function to select a subset of the
      rows in a FITS table that have coordinates that lie within a specified
      spatial region on the sky.  This bug only affects the rarely used panda
      (and epanda and bpanda) region shapes in which the region is defined by
      the intersection of an annulus  and a pie-shaped wedge.  The previous code
      (starting with version 3.181 of CFITSIO where support for the panda region
      was first introduced) only worked correctly if the 2 angles that define
      the wedge have values between -180 and +180.  If not, then fewer rows than
      expected may have been selected from the table.
    * fixed the extended filename parser so that when creating a histogram by
      binning 2 table columns, if a keyword or column name is given as the
      weighting factor,  then the output histrogram image will have a floating
      point datatype, not the default integer datatype as is the case when no
      weigth is specified (e.g. with a filename like
      "myfile.fits[bin x,y; weight_column]"
    * added fix to the code in imcompress.c to work around a problem with
      dereferencing the value of a pointer, in cases where the address of
      that pointer has not been defined (e.g., the nulval variable).
    * modified the byte shuffling algorithm in fits_shuffle_8bytes to work
      around a strange bug in the proprietary SunStudioExpress C compiler
      under OpenSolaris.
    * removed spurious messages on the CFITSIO error stack when opening a
      FITS file with FTP (in drvrnet.c);
  - Removed the changes from cfitsio-makefile.patch (fixed upstream).
  - Spec file updates:
    * Changed License entry to SPDX style.
    * Enable multithreading support.
* Tue Oct 04 2011
  - Added correct fix for cfitsio.pc include dirs (Cflags: was wrongly replaced
    with $Cflags:). Fixes reopened bnc#546004.
* Fri Sep 16 2011

      rpmlint warning).
    * Added cfitsio package (containing some utilities).
    * Fixes for cfitsio.pc.
    * Minor other updates.
* Thu May 20 2010
  - update to version 3.23.0,
    * reduced the default value for the floating point image
      quantization parameter (q) from 16 to 4.
    * enhanced the template keyword parsing routine to reject a
      header template string that only contains a sequence of dashes.
    * enhanced the ASCII region file reading routine to allow tabs
      as well as spaces between fields in the file.
    * got rid of bogus error message when calling
    * Made the error message more explicit when CFITSIO tries to
      write to a GZIP compressed file.
    * several bugfixes

    * added a clarification to the cfortran.doc file that cfortran.h
    may be used and distributed under the terms of the GNU Library
    General Public License.
    * many many bugfixes
  - obsoletes strncat_overflow.patch

  - switched to gcc-fortran in BuildRequires
* Mon Oct 15 2007
  - fixed buffer overflow using strncat
* Mon Oct 15 2007
  - update to version 3.06
    * modified the imcopy.c utility program (to tile-compress images)
      so that it writes the default EXTNAME = 'COMPRESSED_IMAGE'
      keyword in the compressed images, to preserve the behavior of
      earlier versions of imcopy.
    * modified the angsep function in the FITS calculator (in eval.y)
      to use haversines, instead of the 'law of cosines', to provide
      more precision at small angles (< 0.1 arcsec).
    * extensive changes to imcompress.c to fully support implicit
      data type conversion when reading and writing arrays of data
      to FITS images, where the data type of the array is not the
      same as the data type of the FITS image.  This includes
      support for null pixels, and data scaling via the BSCALE and
      BZERO keywords.
    * rewrote the fits_read_tbl_coord routine in wcssub.c, that gets
      the standard set of WCS keywords appropriate to a pair of
      columns in a table, to better support the full set of
      officially approved WCS keywords.
    * made significant changes to histo.c, which creates an image by
      binning columns of a table, to better translate the WCS
      keywords in the table header into the WCS keywords that are
      appropriate for an image HDU.
    * modified imcompress.c so that when pixels are written to a
      tile-compressed image, the appropriate BSCALE and BZERO values
      of that image are applied.  This fixes a bug in which writing
      to an unsigned integer datatype image (with BZERO = 32768) was
      not done correctly.
* Thu Jul 19 2007
  - split off doc subpackage
