Perl extension for using the cfitsio library

AstroFITSCFITSIO is a perl interface to William Pence’s cfitsio subroutine library. For more information on cfitsio, see http//heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/fitsio.

This module attempts to provide a wrapper for nearly every cfitsio routine, while retaining as much cfitsio behavior as possible. As such, one should be aware that it is still somewhat low-level, in the sense that handing an array which is not the correct size to a routine like fits_write_img may cause SIGSEGVs.
