CSPICE_CKLPF loads a CK pointing file for use by the CK readers,
then returns an integer file handle usable by other CK routine
for file operations.
For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to
the CSPICE routine cklpf_c.
fname the string name of a CK file
cspice_cklpf, fname, handle
handle a scalar integer file handle assigned to 'fname' on
Note: This routine, and all kernel file load routines requiring
explicit file handle management has been superseded by
cspice_furnsh. NAIF recommends users load all kernel files for
read-only data access with cspice_furnsh.
Any numerical results shown for this example may differ between
platforms as the results depend on the SPICE kernels used as input
and the machine specific arithmetic implementation.
;; Given the name of some CK file CK_FILE, load
;; it for data access.
cspice_cklpf, CK_FILE, handle
... perform calculations, but do not change handle ...
;; Unload the CK file. Uses cspice_ckupf only in those
;; situations where you loaded the CK using cspice_cklpf.
