Procedure

   void copy_c (  SpiceCell   * cell,
                  SpiceCell   * copy  )

Abstract

 
   Copy the contents of a SpiceCell of any data type to another 
   cell of the same type.

Brief_I/O

 
   VARIABLE  I/O  DESCRIPTION 
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------- 
   cell       I   Cell to be copied. 
   copy       O   New cell. 
 

Detailed_Input

 
   cell        is a cell of character, double precision, or 
               integer data type.
 
 

Detailed_Output

 
   copy        is a cell which contains the same elements as the 
               input cell, in the same order. 
 

Parameters

 
   None. 
 

Exceptions

 
   1) If the cell arguments don't have matching data types, 
      the error SPICE(TYPEMISMATCH) is signaled.

   2) If the output cell in not large enough to hold the elements 
      of the input cell, the error SPICE(CELLTOOSMALL) is signaled. 

   3) If the cell arguments have character type and the length of the
      elements of the output cell is less than the length of the
      elements of the input cell, the error SPICE(INSUFFLEN) is
      signaled.
 

Files

 
   None. 
 

Particulars

 
   This routine is used primarily to manipulate working cells, since
   many routines that use cells (binary set routines, for instance) do
   not allow cells to be combined or manipulated in place.
 

Examples

 
   In the following example, copy_c is used to copy the result 
   of the union of two character CSICE sets from a temporary 
   working set back into the one of the original set. 
 
      #include "SpiceUsr.h"
           . 
           . 
           . 
      /.
      Declare the cell names with string length LNSIZE and maximum
      number of strings SIZE.
      ./
      SPICECHAR_CELL ( bodies,  SIZE, LNSIZE );
      SPICECHAR_CELL ( planets, SIZE, LNSIZE );
      SPICECHAR_CELL ( temp,    SIZE, LNSIZE );
           . 
           . 
           . 
      union_c ( &bodies, &planets, &temp );
      copy_c  ( &temp,   &bodies         );

 
   If the size of the temporary cell is greater than the size 
   of the original set, the function failed_c should be checked to be 
   sure that no overflow occurred. If bodies is at least as 
   large as temp, no such check is necessary.
