kephead -- search for and list FITS keywords in Kepler data files
kephead infile outfile keyname clobber verbose logfile status
infile = string
The name of a standard format FITS file.
outfile = string
The name of the output ASCII file for storing search results.
keyname = string
The name of a keyword, value and description to print or store within the output file. Partial completions for the keyword are allowed. For example keyname='mag' will return all instances of magnitude keywords (BMAG, VMAG, KEPMAG etc) and their values within the light curves stored at MAST. keyname='all' will return every keyword and their values stored in all extensions within the input FITS file.
clobber = boolean (optional)
Overwrite the output file? if clobber=no and an existing file has
the same name as outfile then the task will stop with an error.
verbose = boolean (optional)
Print informative messages and warnings to the shell and logfile?
logfile = string (optional)
Name of the logfile containing error and warning messages.
status = integer
Exit status of the script. It will be non-zero if the task halted with an
error. This parameter is set by the task and should not be modified by the
The Kepler archive contains science data in Flexible Image Transport System (FITS) format. Images are stored in binary arrays, time series data in binary tables and scalar data as binary keywords. Tools such as kepmask and kepconvert read Kepler image and table data. kephead displays scalar data or converts it from binary to ASCII format. kephead can display all keywords in a file, display individual keywords, or search for character combinations in keywords names.
