function HEADFITS, filename, EXTEN = exten, Compress = compress, $ 
                   ERRMSG = errmsg, SILENT = silent
;       HEADFITS
;       Read a FITS (primary or extension) header into a string array.
;       HEADFITS() can also read gzip (.gz) or Unix compressed (.Z) FITS files.
;       Result = HEADFITS(Filename/Fileunit ,[ ERRMSG =, EXTEN= , COMPRESS=, 
;                                            /SILENT ])
;       Filename = String containing the name of the FITS file to be read.
;                File names ending in '.gz' are assumed to be gzip'ed compressed
;                and under Unix file names ending in '.Z' are assumed to be
;                Unix compressed, and file names ending in .bz2 are assumed to
;                be bzip2 compressed.    If this default behaviour is not 
;                sufficient then use the COMPRESS keyword.
;                            or
;       Fileunit - A scalar integer specifying the unit of an already opened
;                  FITS file.  The unit will remain open after exiting 
;                  HEADFITS().  There are two possible reasons for choosing 
;                  to specify a unit number rather than a file name:
;          (1) For a FITS file with many extensions, one can move to the 
;              desired extensions with FXPOSIT() and then use HEADFITS().  This
;              is more efficient that repeatedly starting at the beginning of 
;              the file.
;          (2) For reading a FITS file across a Web http: address after opening
;              the unit with the SOCKET procedure.
;      EXTEN  = Either an integer scalar, specifying which FITS extension to 
;               read, or a scalar string specifying the extension name (stored
;               in the EXTNAME keyword).   For example, to read the header of 
;               the first extension set EXTEN = 1.   Default is to read the 
;               primary FITS header  (EXTEN = 0).    The EXTEN keyword cannot 
;               be used when a unit number is supplied instead of a file name.
;     COMPRESS - If this keyword is set and non-zero, then treat the file
;              as compressed.  If 1 assume a gzipped file.   Use IDL's
;              internal decompression facilities for gzip files, while for 
;              Unix or bzip2 compression spawn off a process to decompress and 
;              use its output as the FITS stream.  If the keyword is not 1, 
;              then use its value as a string giving the command needed for 
;              decompression.   See FXPOSIT for more info.
;     /SILENT - If set, then suppress any warning messages about invalid 
;              characters in the FITS file.
;       ERRMSG	= If this keyword is present, then any error messages will be
;                 returned to the user in this parameter rather than
;                 depending on the MESSAGE routine in IDL.  If no errors are
;                 encountered, then a null string is returned.  
;       Result of function = FITS header, string array
;       Print the main FITS header of a file 'test.fits' into a string 
;       variable, h
;       IDL>  print, headfits( 'test.fits')
;       Print the second extension header of a gzip compressed FITS file
;       'test.fits.gz'.  Use HPRINT for pretty format
;       IDL> hprint, headfits( 'test.fits.gz', ext=2)
;       Read the extension named CALSPEC 
;       IDL> hprint,headfits('test.fits.gz',ext='CALSPEC')
;       adapted by Frank Varosi from READFITS by Jim Wofford, January, 24 1989
