CSPICE_WNFILD fills small gaps between adjacent intervals of a double precision window. For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to the CSPICE routine wnfild_c.
Given: small the scalar double precision limiting measure of the small intervals to fill. Adjacent intervals separated by gaps of measure less than or equal to 'small' are merged. window a scalar, double precision window containing zero or more intervals. 'window' must be created as a window structure via a cspice_celld call. the call: cspice_wnfild, small, window returns: window on output, is the original window, after adjacent intervals separated by 'small' gaps have been merged.
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. ;; ;; Create a cell containing a double ;; precision 8-vector. ;; win1 = cspice_celld( 8 ) ;; ;; Define a window with four intervals. ;; darray = [ [ 1.d, 3.0], [ 7.0, 11.0], [23.0, 27.0], [29.d, 29.d] ] ;; ;; Add the window data to the cell. ;; for i=0, 3 do begin cspice_wninsd, darray[0,i], darray[1,i], win1 endfor ;; ;; Fill the gaps: ;; cspice_wnfild, 3.d0, win1 ;; ;; Calculate the number of intervals in the ;; return window 'win1'. ;; no_intervals = cspice_wncard(win1) ;; ;; Output the intervals. ;; for i= 0, (no_intervals -1 ) do begin cspice_wnfetd, win1, i, left, right print, left, right endfor IDL outputs: 1.0000000 3.0000000 7.0000000 11.000000 23.000000 29.000000 The call combined adjacent intervals separated by a gap of less than or equal to 'small'. In this case the intervals: [ 23, 27 ] [ 29, 29 ] combine to: [23, 29]
The user must create any needed window structures with cspice_celld prior to use regardless of whether the routine uses the window as input or returns it as output.
