fpack - FITS image compression and decompression utilities

fpack optimally compresses FITS format images and funpack restores them
to the original state.

* Integer format images are losslessly compressed using the Rice
compression algorithm.
    * typically 30% better compression than GZIP
    * about 3 times faster compression speed than GZIP
    * about the same uncompression speed as GUNZIP

* Floating-point format images are compressed with a lossy algorithm
    * truncates the image pixel noise by a user-specified amount to
      produce much higher compression than by lossless techniques
    * the precision of scientific measurements in the compressed image
      (relative to those in the original image) depends on the selected
       amount of compression
