This routine reads a FITS file containing alm values for constained realisation. The FITS file is supposed to contain one integer column with index=l2+l+m+1 and 2 or 4 single (or double) precision columns with real/imaginary alm values and real/imaginary standard deviation on these alm. It is supposed to contain either 1 or 3 extension(s) containing respectively the alm for T and if applicable E and B.

call read_conbintab*( filename, alms, nalms[, units, extno] )


name&dimensionality kind in/out description
filename(LEN=filenamelen) CHR IN filename of FITS file containing alm.
nalms I4B IN Number of alm values to read from the file.
alms(0:nalms-1,1:6) SP/ DP OUT the alm read from the file. alms(i,1) and alms(i,2) contain the l and m values for the ith alm . alms(i,3) and alms(i,4) contain the real and imaginary value of the ith alm . Finally, the standard deviation for the ith alm is contained in alms(i,5) (real) and alms(i,6) (imaginary).
units(len=20)(1:) (OPTIONAL) CHR OUT character string containing the units of the alm
extno (OPTIONAL) I4B IN extension (0 based) of the FITS file to be read


call read_conbintab ('alms.fits',alms,65*66/2)
Read 65*66/2 (the number of alm needed to fill the whole range from l=0 to l=64) alm values from the file `alms.fits' into the array alms(0:65*66/2-1,1:6).

alms2fits, dump_alms
routines to write alm to a FITS-file
has the same function as read_conbintab but is more general.
number_of_alms, getsize_fits
can be used to find out the number of alm available in the file.
