Bugs

  1. Use "copyall=no" with the "opt=text/simple" format (04 May 2010)

    The text/simple ASCII format does not support IMAGE blocks. When sorting a table with the default value of the dmsort copyall parameter (yes), the tool attempts to copy the other blocks from the input file, including the NULL PRIMARY image.

    unix% dmsort simple.fits "simple.sort.dat[opt kernel=text/simple]" keys=y
    # DMSORT (CIAO 4.2): Error adding full header. 
    

    Workaround:

    Set copyall=no. Note that any other blocks in the file will not be copied either.
