PyFITS: FITS files in Python
In this article, we provide examples of using the python module PyFITS for working with FITS data. We first go through a brief overview of the FITS standard, and then we describe ways for accessing information in FITS files, using convenience functions defined in PyFITS. PyFITS offers facilities that provide more advanced access to information in FITS files, but these will not be discussed here. Perhaps, a future article will discuss these.
