### SPL_INIT

SPL_INIT

The SPL_INIT function is called to establish the type of interpolating spline for a tabulated set of functional values Xi, Yi = F(Xi).

It is important to realize that SPL_INIT should be called only once to process an entire tabulated function in arrays X and Y. Once this has been done, values of the interpolated function for any value of X can be obtained by calls (as many as desired) to the separate function SPL_INTERP.

## Examples

### Example 1

`X = (FINDGEN(21)/20.) * 2.0*!PIY = SIN(X)PRINT, SPL_INIT(X, Y, YP0 = -1.1, YPN_1 = 0.0)`

IDL Prints:

`23.1552    -6.51599    1.06983   -1.26115  -0.839544    -1.04023`
`-0.950336  -0.817987  -0.592022  -0.311726  2.31192e-05  0.311634`
` 0.592347   0.816783   0.954825   1.02348   0.902068     1.02781`
`-0.198994   3.26597  -11.0260`

### Example 2

`PRINT, SPL_INIT(X, Y, YP0 = -1.1)`

IDL prints:

`23.1552    -6.51599    1.06983   -1.26115  -0.839544    -1.04023`
`-0.950336  -0.817988  -0.592020  -0.311732  4.41521e-05  0.311555`
` 0.592640   0.815690   0.958905   1.00825   0.958905     0.815692`
` 0.592635   0.311567   0.00000`

## Syntax

Result = SPL_INIT( X, Y [, /DOUBLE] [, YP0=value] [, YPN_1=value] )

## Return Value

Returns the values of the 2nd derivative of the interpolating function at the points Xi.

## Arguments

### X

An n-element input vector that specifies the tabulate points in ascending order.

### Y

An n-element input vector that specifies the values of the tabulated function F(Xi) corresponding to Xi.

## Keywords

### DOUBLE

Set this keyword to force the computation to be done in double-precision arithmetic.

### YP0

The first derivative of the interpolating function at the point X0. If YP0 is omitted, the second derivative at the boundary is set to zero, resulting in a “natural spline.”

### YPN_1

The first derivative of the interpolating function at the point Xn-1. If YPN_1 is omitted, the second derivative at the boundary is set to zero, resulting in a “natural spline.”
