       MakeNoise - add noise to an image


       astmknoise [OPTION...] ASTRdata


       MakeNoise  is  part  of  GNU Astronomy Utilities 0.5.  MakeNoise will add noise to all the
       pixels in an input dataset. The noise parameters can be specified with the options below.

       For more information, please run any of the following commands. In particular  the  second
       contains  a  very  comprehensive explanation of MakeNoise's invocation: expected input(s),
       output(s), and a full description of all the options.

       All options and their values:
              $ astmknoise -P

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
              $ info astmknoise

       Full section in manual/book:
              $ info MakeNoise

       Full Gnuastro manual/book:
              $ info gnuastro

       If you couldn't find your answer in the manual, you can get direct help  from  experienced
       Gnuastro users and developers. For more information, please run:

       -s, --sigma=FLT
              Total noise sigma, ignore other options.

       -z, --zeropoint=FLT
              Zeropoint magnitude of input.


       -D, --dontdelete

              Operating modes:

       -?, --help
              give this help list

       --cite BibTeX citation for this program.

              Read configuration file STR immediately.

       -e, --envseed
              Use GSL_RNG_SEED environment variable for seed

              Do not parse any more configuration files.

       --log  Information about output(s) in a log file.

              Minimum bytes in array to not use ram RAM.

       -N, --numthreads=INT
              Number of CPU threads to use.

              Only run if the program version is STR.

       -P, --printparams
              Print parameter values to be used and abort.

       -q, --quiet
              Only report errors, remain quiet about steps.

       -S, --setdirconf
