Bug#775520: ITP: netcdf-cxx -- C++ Libraries for NetCDF (network Common Data Form)

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ross Gammon <rossgammon@mail.dk>

* Package name    : netcdf-cxx
  Version         : 4.2.1
  Upstream Author : University Corporation for Atmospheric Research/Unidata
* URL             : http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/
* License         : NetCDF
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : C++ Libraries for NetCDF (network Common Data Form)

NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is an interface for scientific
data access and a freely-distributed software library that provides an
implementation of the interface.  The netCDF library also defines a
machine-independent format for representing scientific data.
Together, the interface, library, and format support the creation,
access, and sharing of scientific data.

This package contains the C++ shared library.

The netcdf package used to contain C, C++ and Fortran libraries. The
latest netcdf tarball now contains only the C library, and the C++
and Fortran libraries are released individually. As there are quite a few
reverse dependencies of all three libraries, we need to package all three
and do a coordinated transition.

This package as well as the C and FOrtran libraries will be maintained
within the Debian GIS Team.
