User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:34.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/34.0
Build Identifier:

cfitsio-devel libraries exist on the system. After installation and creating a new database (with monetdb create), one still needs to execute extra commands to enable the fits functionality.
The commands to be executed are:

create procedure listdir(dirname string) external name fits.listdir;
create procedure fitsattach(fname string) external name fits.attach;
create procedure fitsload(tname string) external name fits.load;
create procedure listdirpat(dirname string,pat string) external name fits.listdirpattern;

After this it works (from within mclient).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. monetdb create bg; monetdb release bg; monetdb start bg
  2. mclient -dbg
  3. sql> call fitsattach('/home/bscheers/Desktop/r564532_cat.fits');
    SELECT: no such unary operator 'fitsattach(char)'

Actual Results:

See above:

Expected Results:

Fits file to be attached.
