QIMVAL: DetermineS pixel value at specified position quietly
INNAME Image name(name).
INCLASS Image name(class).
INSEQ 0.0 9999.0 Image name(seq. #). 0=>high
INDISK 0.0 9.0 Disk drive #. 0=>any
PIXXY 0.0 4096.0 (X,Y,...) pixel in image
DOCENTER -1.0 1.0 > 0 -> value at pixel
else cubic interpolate
@ Output adverbs
PIXVAL @ Intensity at PIXXY.
COORDINA @ Coordinates at pixel
ERROR @ > 0 => fit failed, else okay
Use: QIMVAL does a cubic interpolation of the image value at the image
location specified by PIXXY (in pixels) and returns the value in
PIXVAL and the coordinate in COORDINA. QIMVAL differs from IMVAL
only in the fact that it does not report any of its results to
the terminal or message file.
INNAME......Image name(name). Standard defaults.
INCLASS.....Image name(class). Standard defaults.
INSEQ.......Image name(seq. #). 0 => highest.
INDISK......Disk drive # of image. 0 => any.
PIXXY.......(X,Y,...) pixel location in image. NOT zero
on the X and Y axes anyway.
DOCENTER....> 0 => find value at closest pixel to PIXXY
<= 0 => do a cubic interpolation about PIXXY
PIXVAL......Intensity at this pixel.
COORDINA....The X and Y coordinates are found as:
Xpos = abs(CO(1)) + abs(CO(2))/60 + abs(CO(3))/3600
if any of CO(1), CO(2), CO(3) < 0: Xpos = -Xpos
Ypos = abs(CO(4)) + abs(CO(5))/60 + abs(CO(6))/3600
if any of CO(4), CO(5), CO(6) < 0: Ypos = -Ypos
Note that, although these are most suited to RA, Dec in
sexagesimal notation, they can be used for any type of
coordinate. The units are standard FITS units (e.g
degrees, m/sec, Hz, sec, etc.) except that right
ascensions are in hours of time.
ERROR.......If the verb is not aborted for error, but the
interpolation fails, ERROR will be TRUE (1), else
it will be FALSE (-1).
