New header parameters or facilities
A number of new objects have been added to the header in addition to
all the previous ones:
- For the programmer convenience, 3 pointers to the ref(:),
val(:) and inc(:) values are now available, allowing
easy writing of loops on the dimensions. They are real Fortran
pointers to (and not duplicate of) the convert array from
the COORDINATE section.
- In the EXTREMA section, the min and max value coordinates in the
cube are coded in memory as a MINLOC and MAXLOC
arrays with 7 elements. In the disk file, they are coded as 2
flat (scalar) address in the data.
- The Doppler factor (dopp) and the velocity type ( vtyp) have been added to the SPECTROSCOPY section.
