       MakeProfiles - make standard 2D profiles on an image


       astmkprof [OPTION...] [Options] [Catalog]


       MakeProfiles  is  part  of  GNU Astronomy Utilities 0.18.  MakeProfiles will create a FITS
       image containing any number of mock astronomical profiles based on an input  catalog.  All
       the  profiles  will  be  built from the center outwards. First by Monte Carlo integration,
       then using the central pixel position. The tolerance level specifies when the switch  will

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

       All options and their values:
              $ astmkprof -P

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
              $ info astmkprof
