This package requires prior installation of IRAF


The IRAF external package, DIGIPHOTX (a new version of the DIGIPHOT package), is being made available prior to its official release in IRAF 2.10.3. DIGIPHOTX contains: 1) a new version of the DAOPHOT package, DAOPHOTX, which is the IRAF implementation of Peter Stetson's DAOPHOT II package, 2) a new curve of growth analysis task in the PHOTCALX package, 3) several new tasks in the PTOOLSX package, 4) minor enhancements and bug fixes to existing tasks that have been discovered since the last exported version.

The installation instructions that follow describe how to retrieve the DIGIPHOTX archive file, unpack the source files, build, and link the package. If your IRAF system has been stripped of the IRAF libraries (via 'mkpkg stripall') you will not be able to build the DIGIPHOTX executable as described here. You must either reload the required libraries or request a binary distribution of DIGIPHOTX for your operating system.

Some DIGIPHOTX tasks make use of the STSDAS TABLES package library routines. In order to successfully link all the DIGIPHOTX executables, the STSDAS TABLES package must be installed. A copy of the ST TABLES package retrieval and installation instructions is included at the end of the file.
