Quick ICRS, epoch J2000.0, to CIRS transformation, given precomputed
star-independent astrometry parameters.

Use of this function is appropriate when efficiency is important and
where many star positions are to be transformed for one date.  The
star-independent parameters can be obtained by calling one of the
functions eraApci[13], eraApcg[13], eraApco[13] or eraApcs[13].

If the parallax and proper motions are zero the eraAtciqz function
can be used instead.

   rc,dc  double     ICRS RA,Dec at J2000.0 (radians, Note 1)
   pr     double     RA proper motion (radians/year, Note 2)
   pd     double     Dec proper motion (radians/year)
   px     double     parallax (arcsec)
   rv     double     radial velocity (km/s, +ve if receding)

1) Star data for an epoch other than J2000.0 (for example from the
   Hipparcos catalog, which has an epoch of J1991.25) will require a
   preliminary call to eraPmsafe before use.

2) The proper motion in RA is dRA/dt rather than cos(Dec)*dRA/dt.
