Abstract: We present a set of IRAF tasks for converting foreign image formats to and from the native IRAF format. Traditionally, this has been done by writing individual one-to-one conversion utilities, either as single tasks or as procedures within a multiple-format conversion tool. This approach often results in the unnecessary duplication of code for formats that are actually very similar.
