12. Local FITS Conventions

CFITSIO supports several local FITS conventions which are not defined in the official FITS standard and which are not necessarily recognized or supported by other FITS software packages. Programmers should be cautious about using these features, especially if the FITS files that are produced are expected to be processed by other software systems which do not use the CFITSIO interface.
