( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Greetings Fellow Monks.

The background (pun intended) to my request is that I have some astronomical images in FITS format and I would like to remove a spatially varying background as the first stage of image enhancement. It seems clear to me that PDL is the way to go, though I am quite prepared to be convinced otherwise

CPAN contains some PDL modules which perform least squares fitting to one-dimensional data. I realise that surface fitting can be performed by re-arranging the data so that it appears to be linear (by storing it by rows or by columns) and that the independent variables can be munged to suit. However, that would appear to be inelegant and potentially costly for surface fitting to large image patches.

Surely someone must have encountered this situation before and has written code to deal with it?

I undoubtedly can write my own code but I am lazy. If I do need to write a function I will endeavour to make it publicly available.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
