Do I have to use the GUI to run AstroDrizzle?

Are there command line options to run AstroDrizzle in python scripts?

    Yes there are. You first need to import astrodrizzle from drizzlepac and then to run astrodrizzle you do astrodrizzle.AstroDrizzle(input = '*flt.fits').

    Here's an example:
    from drizzlepac import astrodrizzle
    astrodrizzle.AstroDrizzle(input = '*flt.fits', output= 'myfinal_drizzle.fits')

    There is also documentation here where you can find the names to the other arguments astrodrizzle uses.

    You can also still access the GUI from Python if you need to, with a command like:
    iraf.epar('astrodrizzle')

    Chapter 5 of the Drizzlepac Handbook describes all the different ways you can use the Drizzlepac tasks.
