Abstract


   CSPICE_CKOPN opens a new CK file, returning the handle
   of the opened file.

I/O


   Given:

      fname    the name of the CK file to open.

               [1,c1] = size(fname); char = class(fname)

                  or

               [1,1] = size(fname); cell = class(fname)

      ifname   a descriptive internal filename for the CK.

               [1,m2] = size(ifname); char = class(ifname)

                  or

               [1,1] = size(ifname); cell = class(ifname)

      ncomch   the number of characters to reserve for comments.

               [1,1] = size(ncomch); int32 = class(ncomch)

   the call:

      handle = cspice_ckopn( name, ifname, ncomch )

   returns:

      handle   the file handle assigned to 'fname'

               [1,1] = size(handle); int32 = class(handle)

Examples


   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.

      %
      % Define needed parameters, a name for the CK, the
      % file internal name, and the number of characters
      % to reserve for a comment block.
      %
      CK1        = 'type1.bc';
      IFNAME     = 'CK';
      NCOMCH     = 10;

      %
      % Open a new kernel.
      %
       handle = cspice_ckopn( CK1, IFNAME, NCOMCH);

         ... do some writes to the open CK file ...

      %
      % SAFELY close the file
      %
      cspice_ckcls( handle )

Particulars


   A cspice_ckcls call should balance every cspice_ckopn
   call.
