Keywords


ERRMSG = If defined and passed, then any error messages will be
returned to the user in this parameter rather than
depending on the MESSAGE routine in IDL. If no errors are
encountered, then a null string is returned. In order to
use this feature, ERRMSG must be defined first, e.g.
ERRMSG = ''
FXBFINISH, ERRMSG=ERRMSG, ...
IF ERRMSG NE '' THEN ...

Calls


None.
  Common :
Uses common block FXBINTABLE--see "fxbintable.pro" for more
information.

Restrictions


The file must have been opened with FXBCREATE, and written with
FXBWRITE.

Side Effects


Any bytes needed to pad the file out to an integral multiple of 2880
bytes are written out to the file. Then, the file is closed.
