# \arguments{

#
# \section{Redundant fields}{
#   The CEL v4 header contains redundant information. To avoid inconsistency
#   this method generates such redundant values from the original values.
#   This is consistent to how the CEL reader in Fusion SDK does it, cf.
#   @see "readCelHeader".  The redundant information is in the (CEL v3)
#   \code{header} field, which contains the CEL header information as it
#   would appear in the CEL v3 format.  This in turn contains a DAT header
#   field reproducing the DAT header from the image analysis.  It is from
#   this DAT header that the chip type is extracted.

# HISTORY:
# 2007-08-16
# o Now writeCelHeader() can write CEL header given CCG v1 CEL headers,
#   in addition to v4 headers.
# o Added argument 'outputVersion' to writeCelHeader().  It still only
#   supports version 4, though.
# 2007-08-15
# o Created internal function writeCelHeaderV4().
# 2006-09-10
# o BUG FIX: A hard to find bug was that strings in the CEL header must 
#   *not* be written with a null terminator.
# 2006-09-07
# o With help of all the private unwrap and wrap functions, it seems to
#   work now.
# 2006-09-03
# o Created.
