Deprecated: This routine has been superseded by bodvcd_c and bodvrd_c. This routine is supported for purposes of backward compatibility only. Return the values of some item for any body in the kernel pool.
VARIABLE I/O DESCRIPTION -------- --- -------------------------------------------------- body I ID code of body. item I Item for which values are desired. ("RADII", "NUT_PREC_ANGLES", etc. ) dim O Number of values returned. values O Values.
body is the ID code of the body for which ITEM is requested. Bodies are numbered according to the standard NAIF numbering scheme. item is the item to be returned. Together, the body and item name combine to form a variable name, e.g., "BODY599_RADII" "BODY401_POLE_RA"
dim is the number of values associated with the variable. values are the values associated with the variable.
The call SpiceInt body; SpiceInt dim; SpiceChar * item; SpiceDouble value; body = 399; item = "RADII"; bodvar_c ( body, item, &dim, value ); returns the dimension and values associated with the variable "BODY399_RADII", for example, dim is 3 value is 6378.140 value is 6378.140 value is 6356.755
1) If the requested item is not found, the error SPICE(KERNELVARNOTFOUND) is signalled.

-CSPICE Version 2.0.3, 27-OCT-2005 (NJB) Routine is now deprecated. -CSPICE Version 2.0.2, 08-JAN-2004 (EDW) Trivial typo corrected. -CSPICE Version 2.0.1, 08-FEB-1998 (EDW) Corrected and clarified header entries. -CSPICE Version 2.0.0, 06-JAN-1998 (NJB) Input argument item was changed to type ConstSpiceChar *. References to C2F_CreateStr_Sig were removed; code was cleaned up accordingly. String checks are now done using the macro CHKFSTR. -CSPICE Version 1.0.0, 25-OCT-1997 (EDW)
