fitscopy - copy FITS files with optional filtering
fitscopy inputfile outputfile
Copy an input file to an output file, optionally filtering the file in the process. This seemingly simple program can apply powerful filters which transform the input file as it is being copied. Filters may be used to extract a subimage from a larger image, select rows from a table, filter a table with a GTI time extension or a SAO region file, create or delete columns in a table, create an image by binning (histogramming) 2 table columns, and convert IRAF format *.imh or raw binary data files into FITS images.
