Bug#812187: ITP: pnetcdf -- parallel netCDF library for scientific I/O

Package: wnpp

Owner: Alastair McKinstry <mckinstry@debian.org>

* Package name    : pnetcdf
  Version         : 1.7.0
  Upstream Author : Northwestern University and Argonne National Laboratory

  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : parallel netCDF library for scientific I/O

 PnetCDF is a library providing high-performance parallel I/O while still
 maintaining file-format compatibility with  Unidata's NetCDF,
 specifically the formats of CDF-1 and CDF-2.
 Although NetCDF supports parallel I/O starting from version 4, the files
 must be in HDF5 format. PnetCDF is currently the only choice for carrying
 out parallel I/O on files that are in classic formats (CDF-1 and 2).
 In addition, PnetCDF supports the CDF-5 file format, an extension of CDF-2,
 that supports more data types and allows users to define large dimensions,
 attributes, and variables (>2B elements).
 This package will be used as a dependency of the NetCDF package already present
 in Debian to provide additional functionality, and when stable will be
 co-maintained in the Debian GIS project.
