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.

  - Update to version 4.3.1:
    * Improve longstring keyword functions
* Wed Jul 26 2023 Atri Bhattacharya <>
  - Update to version 4.3.0:
    * Bug fix to fits_make_hist[d] that was introduced in 4.2.0.
    * Added overflow checking for case of reading images with 8-byte
      float values into 4-byte float arrays.
    * fits_write_key_longstr now handles case of writing a long
      keyword in combination with a long keyword value string.
    * Add conversion of French locale comma-to-period in corner
      cases appearing in ffr2e and ffd2e functions.
    * Increased the precision when writing version number to
      User-Agent strings for http connections.  This is needed to
      fully conform to 3-field version string format.
    * Bug fix to GTIOVERLAP() calculator function, which was being
      treated as a boolean value in expressions, and is now
      correctly treated as a floating point result.
    * Bug fix to ARRAY() calculator function, which caused a memory
      overflow error
    * Enhancement to the ARRAY function, such that ARRAY(V,d) can
      apply new dimensions to V, as long as the total number of
      array/vector elements does not change.
    * Enhancement of long string keyword read/write functions to
      fully conform with FITS standard specifications for multi-line
      value and comment strings. Two new functions have been added
      to implement this: fits_get_key_com_strlen and
  - Make doc package noarch.
* Sun Dec 11 2022 Stefan Brüns <>
  - Update to version 4.2.0:
    - This release includes patches to security vulnerabilities.
      We strongly encourage this upgrade, particularly for those
      running CFITSIO in web accessible applications.
    - Fix to fits_read_key function, which was failing to properly
      read keywords declared type TUINT on compilers where
      sizeof(int) = sizeof(long).
    - Added new functions fits_read_cols and fits_write_cols to
      efficiently read or write multiple columns in a single
      function call
    - Added new function fits_copy_selrows to copy only selected
      rows, such as the selected rows returned by fits_find_rows
    - Added new calculator functions ERF(X), ERFC(X) and GAMMA(X),
      which are mathematical special functions of the same name
    - Added new calculator function GTIFIND() which reports which
      GTI row brackets a given time sample
    - Added new calculator functions which operate upon vector table
      values NAXIS(V), NAXES(V,n), ELEMENTNUM(V) and AXISELEM(V,n),
      and ARRAY(X,d) which promotes scalar X to a vector or array
      with given dimensions.
    - The CFITSIO histogramming code now handles binning by any
      arbitrary calculator expression rather than just a column name.
      Both the binned columns as well as the optional weights may be
      calculator expressions, enclosed in parentheses.
    - Binning of vector columns or expressions is now supported, as
      long as all binned inputs (as well as the optional weighting)
      have the same vector dimensions. Binning of variable-length
      columns remains unsupported.
    - A bug that caused histogram weights from columns that are null
      values to be tallied along with non-null values has been fixed.
    - The CFITSIO calculator and histogramming functionality is now
      fully reentrant and does not require multithreading interlocks.
    - A long-standing segmentation fault bug in the histogramming
      code related to binning any value using the "reciprocal" /XXXX
      notation has been fixed.
    - Added mutex locks for thread safety in ftgiou and ftfiou.
    - Added several Fortran wrappers to support image read/write when
      'fpixel' and 'nelements' are 8-byte integers.
    - Fixed bug which was adding spaces to some cases of long string
      key value output.
  - Enable SSE2 on x86_64
  - Package fitscopy util
  - Enable bzip2 support
* Tue Mar 29 2022 Asterios Dramis <>
  - Update to version 4.1.0:
    * Calls to the zlib inflate() function in zcompress.c now handle
      the Z_BUF_ERROR return value rather than exiting.
    * The SUBTRACTIVE_DITHER_2 option has been removed when using the
      HCOMPRESS algorithm.
    * Updated fits_get_version function to return a float calculated
      from 3 version fields.
    * Added handling of SBYTE_IMG and ULONGLONG_IMG types to the
      fits_resize_img function.
    * Updates made to C/Fortran interfacing in cfortran.h and
      f77_wrap.h specifically driven by new Mac/ARM architecture.
    * Fix to the fits_insert_col functions to handle columns with
      TULONGLONG data.
* Sun Aug 01 2021 Asterios Dramis <>
  - Update to version 4.0.0:
    - Removed separate directory for zlib/gzip code, and updated
      configuration to check for zlib on the user's system
      (required). When use of cURL is enabled, it may also pull in
      zlib such that user applications may not need to link with it
    - Changed version numbering to 3-field format.
    - Added new calculator functions SETNULL(x,y) to allow
      substitution of NULL values into tables, and GTIOVERLAP() for
      calculating the amount of GTI overlap exposure for a time bin.
    - Fix added for proper handling of string columns with zero
      repeat count.
    - Fix to column filtering expressions which write #NULL values to
      columns of type (J) format.
    - Fix to memory clearing when using polygon shapes in region
    - Fix to fits_str2time function so that it now flags a particular
      case of bad syntax which was previously getting through.
    - In ffgclb and ffpclb (read/write byte columns), the
      "undocumented" feature of being able to transfer columns 'A'
      string columnss as byte arrays is now handled correctly, with
      improved error checking via updates to ffgcprll.  More
      documentation on string handling is in cfitsio.tex.
    - Fix bug in 'colfilter' functionality.  When performing a
      column deletion of the form -COLNAM*, and multiple matches
      existed, then none of the matches got deleted.  Now the
      first is deleted as expected.
    - Improved handling of corner case in ffpkn functions.
    - In ffgky, modified TULONG case to allow it to read unsigned
      values greater than the 8-byte signed limit.
    - Fix to parsing of corner case of extended file syntax.
    - Major updates to CMake configuration.
  - Removed cfitsio-zlib.patch (not needed anynore).
* 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.
