Print FITS or IRAF image header


imhead [options] FITS or IRAF filename


imhead is a utility for listing IRAF and FITS image headers. It converts IRAF .imh image headers to a FITS format before listing them. For IRAF files, the BITPIX, NAXIS, NAXIS1, NAXIS2, OBJECT, and PIXFILE keywords are set from the binary portion of the header. IMHFILE is set from the actual filename for internal purposes.



Write exact FITS header, with no inserted newlines and including trailing blanks


Print name of file and program version before header


Set BITPIX to 0 to output a dataless header
