NAME ^

Astro::FITS::HdrTrans::UKIRT - Base class for translation of UKIRT instruments

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Astro::FITS::HdrTrans::UKIRT;

DESCRIPTION ^

This class provides a generic set of translations that are common to instrumentation from the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope. It should not be used directly for translation of instrument FITS headers.

METHODS ^

can_translate

This implementation of can_translate is used to filter out a database row from an actual file header. The base-class implementation is used if the filter passes.

COMPLEX CONVERSIONS ^

These methods are more complicated than a simple mapping. We have to provide both from- and to-FITS conversions. All these routines are methods and the to_ routines all take a reference to a hash and return the translated value (a many-to-one mapping). The from_ methods take a reference to a generic hash and return a translated hash (sometimes these are many-to-many).

to_COORDINATE_TYPE

Converts the EQUINOX FITS header into B1950 or J2000, depending on equinox value, and sets the COORDINATE_TYPE generic header.

  $class->to_COORDINATE_TYPE( \%hdr );
from_COORDINATE_TYPE

A null translation since EQUINOX is translated separately.

to_RA_BASE

Converts the decimal hours in the FITS header RABASE into decimal degrees for the generic header RA_BASE.

Note that this is different from the original translation within ORAC-DR where it was to decimal hours.

from_RA_BASE

Converts the decimal degrees in the generic header RA_BASE into decimal hours for the FITS header RABASE.

  %fits = $class->from_RA_BASE( \%generic );
to_TELESCOPE

Sets the generic header TELESCOPE to 'UKIRT', so that it is SLALIB-compliant.

from_TELESCOPE

Sets the specific header TELESCOP to 'UKIRT'. Note that this will probably be sub-classed.

HELPER ROUTINES ^

These are UKIRT-specific helper routines.

_parse_date_info

Given either a ISO format date string or a UT date (YYYYMMDD) and decimal hours UT, calculate the time and return it as an object. Preference is given to the ISO version.

  $time = $trans->_parse_date_info($iso, $yyyymmdd, $uthr );
