   CSPICE_CKOBJ finds the set of ID codes of all objects in a 
   specified CK file.

   For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to
   the CSPICE routine ckobj_c.



      ck    the scalar string name of an C-kernel. 

      ids   is an initialized Icy set data structure. 'ids' optionally
            may contain a set of CK ID codes on input; on output, the data
            already present in 'ids' will be combined with CK ID code set
            found for the file 'ck'. 

   the call:

      cspice_ckobj, ck, ids

      ids   an Icy set data structure which contains 
            the union of its contents upon input with the set 
            of CK ID codes of each object for which ephemeris 
            data are present in the indicated CK file. The 
            elements of Icy sets are unique; hence each 
            ID code in `ids' appears only once, even if the CK 
            file contains multiple segments for that ID code. 

            The user must create 'ids' using cspice_celld. (Note:
            a set is a type of cell).


   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.

      ;; in the file then retrieve the time coverage for each object.

   This routine provides an API via which applications can determine 
   the set of objects for which there are pointing data in a 
   specified CK file.

        program now empties the coverage window prior to collecting
        data for the current object. Updated example to
        use cspice_wncard rather than cspice_card.
