  Description     : Common Astronomy Software Applications package

CASA, the Common Astronomy Software Applications package, is being
developed with the primary goal of supporting the data post-processing
needs of the next generation of radio astronomical telescopes such as
ALMA and EVLA. The package can process both interferometric and single
dish data.

The CASA infrastructure consists of a set of C++ tools bundled together
under an iPython interface as a set of data reduction tasks. This
structure provides flexibility to process the data via task interface or
as a python script. In addition to the data reduction tasks, many
post-processing tools are available for even more flexibility and
special purpose reduction needs.
