Description : Astronomical Image Processing System from NRAO
The Astronomical Image Processing System is a software package for
calibration, data analysis, image display, plotting, and a variety of
ancillary tasks on Astronomical Data. It comes from the National
Radio Astronomy Observatory. It is primarily for Radio Astronomy.
Developers, this is a very large package. I'm not even sure if its
appropriate for inclusion in Debian. I will be keeping a copy in my
personal repository, along with all the other astronomy software.
At the moment I'm not even sure how large; it is meant to keep all the
source code along with the executables (and sync via cvs every night
via cron..). The *source* targzball is 67M at 69% compression. But
now I have to come up with a way to isolate the runtime files from the
install files (unfortunately not disjoint).
(The Debian version will not do the nightly CVS thing, btw).
