Python interface for the Common Pipeline Library.

Project description

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 pyfits 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:

http://www.eso.org/sci/software/cpl/

The interface may be used to run ESO pipeline recipes linked to CPL versions 4.0 to 6.3.

Build instructions

python-cpl requires:

  • Python 2.6 or later
  • pyfits

python-cpl uses the standard Python distutils system to build and install itself. From the command line run:

python setup.py install

to install python-cpl.
