    Apply the IDL ROTATE function and update astrometry in a FITS header


    Apply the intrinsic IDL ROTATE function to an image and update
    astrometry in the associated FITS header.

Calling Sequence

    HROTATE, oldim, oldhd, newim, newhd, direction
    HROTATE, oldim, oldhd, direction


    OLDIM - the original image array
    OLDHD - the original FITS image header, string array
    DIRECTION - Scalar integer (0-7) specifying rotation direction,
              exactly as specified by the IDL ROTATE function.
        Direction Transpose? Rot. CCW X1 Y1
      0 No None X0 Y0 (no change)
      1 No 90 -Y0 X0
      2 No 180 -X0 -Y0
      3 No 270 Y0 -X0
      4 Yes None Y0 X0
      5 Yes 90 -X0 Y0
      6 Yes 180 -Y0 -X0
      7 Yes 270 X0 -Y0

Optional Outputs

    NEWIM - the rotated image, with the same dimensions as Oldim
    NEWHD - header for newim containing updated astrometry info
              If output parameters are not supplied, the program
              will modify the input parameters OLDIM and OLDHD
              to contain the rotated image and updated header.

Optional Keyword Output

    ERRMSG - If this keyword is supplied, then any error mesasges will be
              returned to the user in this parameter rather than depending on
              on the MESSAGE routine in IDL. If no errors are encountered
              then a null string is returned.


    Rotate an image exactly 90 degrees counterclockwise and update the
    FITS image array and header.
      IDL> HROT, im, h, im_new, h_new, 1


      The image array is rotated using the ROTATE function.
      The CD (or CROTA) and CRPIX parameters, if present in the FITS header,
      are updated for the new rotation.
      History records are also added to the header


    Does not work Guide Star Survey (GSS) astrometry. Use GSSS_STDAST to
    first convert
