Abstract


   CSPICE_SPKOPN opens a new SPK file, returning the handle
   of the opened file.

I/O


   Given:

      fname    the name of the SPK file to open.

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

                  or

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

      ifname   the descriptive internal filename for the SPK.

               [1,c2] = size(ifname); char = class(ifname)

                  or

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

      ncomch   the scalar integer number of characters to
               reserve for comments.

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

   the call:

      handle = cspice_spkopn( 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.


Particulars


   A cspice_spkcls call should balance every cspice_spkopn
   call.
