9. Specialized CFITSIO Interface Routines

The basic interface routines described previously are recommended for most uses, but the routines described in this chapter are also available if necessary. Some of these routines perform more specialized function that cannot easily be done with the basic interface routines while others duplicate the functionality of the basic routines but have a slightly different calling sequence. See Appendix B for the definition of each function parameter.
