void bodvar_c ( SpiceInt body,
ConstSpiceChar * item,
SpiceInt * dim,
SpiceDouble * values )
Deprecated: This routine has been superseded by bodvcd_c and
bodvrd_c. This routine is supported for purposes of backward
Return the values of some item for any body in the
VARIABLE I/O DESCRIPTION
-------- --- --------------------------------------------------
body I ID code of body.
item I Item for which values are desired. ("RADII",
"NUT_PREC_ANGLES", etc. )
dim O Number of values returned.
values O Values.
body is the ID code of the body for which ITEM is
requested. Bodies are numbered according to the
standard NAIF numbering scheme.
item is the item to be returned. Together, the body and
item name combine to form a variable name, e.g.,
dim is the number of values associated with the variable.
values are the values associated with the variable.
SpiceChar * item;
body = 399;
item = "RADII";
bodvar_c ( body, item, &dim, value );
returns the dimension and values associated with the variable
"BODY399_RADII", for example,
dim is 3
value is 6378.140
value is 6378.140
value is 6356.755
1) If the requested item is not found, the error
SPICE(KERNELVARNOTFOUND) is signalled.
1) Refer to the SPK required reading file for a complete list of
the NAIF integer ID codes for bodies.
