Fix Version/s: None
Team:Data Access and Database
I just noticed that if we compress files on disk (using gzip in this case) that the butler can't read them, although cfitsio can. That is,
calexp = butler.get("calexp", dataId)
calexp = afwImage.ExposureF(butler.get("calexp_filename", dataId))
SDSS's butler-equivalent checked for a variety of suffixes. for example
["", ".gz", ".fz"]
and handled this transparently, searching for files with one of these suffixes appended until a match was found.
Please provide this, or equivalent, functionality.
