       astscript-radial-profile - Create a radial profile of an object in an image


       astscript-radial-profile [OPTION] FITS-files


       This script is part of GNU Astronomy Utilities 0.18.

       This  script  will  consider  the input image for constructing the radial profile around a
       given center with elliptical apertures.

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

       Inputs/Outputs and options:
              $ info astscript-radial-profile

       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:

              $ info help-gnuastro

   astscript-radial-profile options:

              Measurement operator (mean, sigclip-mean, etc.).

       -v, --oversample
              Oversample for higher resolution radial profile.

       -u, --undersample=INT
              Undersample for lower resolution radial profile.

       -i, --instd=FLT/STR
              Sky standard deviation per pixel, as a single number or as the filename.

       -d, --stdhdu=STR
              HDU/extension of the sky standard deviation image.

              Operating mode:

       -?, --help

       --cite BibTeX citation for this program.

       -q, --quiet
              Don't print any extra information in stdout.

       -V, --version
              Print program version.

       -Z, --zeroisnotblank
              0.0 in float or double images are not blank.
