python-cpl 0.6

Python interface for the Common Pipeline Library.

Package Documentation

Latest Version: 0.6.2

This module can list, configure and execute CPL-based recipes from Python. The input, calibration and output data can be specified as FITS files or as objects in memory.

The Common Pipeline Library (CPL) comprises a set of ISO-C libraries that provide a comprehensive, efficient and robust software toolkit. It forms a basis for the creation of automated astronomical data-reduction tasks. One of the features provided by the CPL is the ability to create data-reduction algorithms that run as plugins (dynamic libraries). These are called “recipes” and are one of the main aspects of the CPL data-reduction development environment. More information about the CPL can be found here:

The interface may be used to run ESO pipeline recipes linked to CPL versions 4.0 to 6.3.1.
