Description : legacy NetCDF C++ interface
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 version of the netCDF C++ library is provided for backwards compatibility
as a separate package. It was developed before key C++ concepts like
namespaces, and exceptions were widely supported. It's not recommended for new
projects, but it still works.
This package contains the legacy C++ shared libraries.
This package will ease the transition to the latest netcdf-cxx package in
Debian, by allowing reverse dependencies that still depend on the old netCDF
C++ library to utilise this legacy package instead.
The package will be maintained within the Debian GIS Team.
