Brief_I/O

 
   VARIABLE  I/O  DESCRIPTION 
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------- 
   descr      I   An SPK segment descriptor. 
   body       O   The NAIF ID code for the body of the segment. 
   center     O   The center of motion for body. 
   frame      O   The ID code for the frame of this segment. 
   type       O   The type of SPK segment. 
   first      O   The first epoch for which the segment is valid. 
   last       O   The last  epoch for which the segment is valid. 
   begin      O   Beginning DAF address of the segment. 
   end        O   Ending DAF address of the segment. 
 

Detailed_Input

 
   descr      is an SPK segment descriptor. 
 

Detailed_Output

 
   body       is the NAIF ID code for the body of the segment. 
 
   center     is the center of motion for body. 
 
   frame      is the SPICE integer code for the frame to which states 
              for the body are be referenced. 
 
   type       is the type of SPK segment. 
 
   first      is the first epoch for which the segment has 
              ephemeris data. 
 
   last       is the last epoch for which the segment has 
              ephemeris data. 
 
   begin      is the starting address of the data associated 
              with this descriptor. 
 
   end        is the last address of the data associated with 
              this descriptor.

Particulars

 
   This routine extracts the contents of an SPK segment 
   descriptor into the components needed for reading and 
   evaluating the data stored in the segment.  It serves 
   as a macro for expanding the SPK segment descriptor. 
 

Examples

 
   Suppose you wished to summarize a particular SPK segment 
   and that you have the descriptor for that segment in hand. 
   The following code fragment shows how you might use this 
   routine to create a summary message concerning the segment. 
 
      #include <stdio.h>
      #include "SpiceUsr.h"
      
      #define   TIMLEN       35
            .
            .
            .
            
      spkuds_c ( descr,  &body, &center, &frame, 
  .              &type,  &first, &last,  &baddr, &eaddr ); 
 
      /.
      Convert the start and stop times to TDB calendar strings.
      ./
      etcal_c ( first, TIMLEN, fstcal ); 
      etcal_c ( last,  TIMLEN, lstcal ); 
 
      printf ( "\n"
               "Body     : %d\n"  
               "Center   : %d\n"   
               "Frame ID : %d\n"   
               "Data Type: %d\n"  
               "\n"
               "Segment Start :  %s\n"  
               "Segment Stop  :  %s\n",
               body,
               center,
               frame,
               type,
               fstcal,
               lstcal                   );
