Description : Fortran 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 Fortran 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 C++ libraries will be maintained
within the Debian GIS Team.
