       dfits - display FITS file header information


       dfits [-x xtnum] <list>
       dfits [-x xtnum] -


       dfits  displays FITS header informations on stdout. Header information can be found in the
       main header only (default), in extensions, or in both.  See the -x  option  below.   dfits
       accepts  multi-file  input.   'dfits -' expects single file data coming from stdin.  dfits
       also accepts now 'HDR' files. These are identified from the fact that they contain a  line
       feed in one of the 80 first characters.


       -x xtnum
              Specifies  the  extension to print out. Extensions are numbered starting from 1. If
              this option is not specified, only the main header is printed out. If  this  option
              specifies an extension that does not exist, nothing is printed out.
              Specify  0 as extension number to get a print of the main header plus all extension

       Examples :
       dfits *.fits
       dfits *.fits | grep NAXIS3
       gzip -d < star.fits.gz | dfits - | more
       dfits -x 0 *.fits
       dfits -x 3 *.fits


       fitsort can be combined with dfits output to sort out keyword values of a  group  of  FITS


       Files shall all comply with FITS format
