Description : Common Pipeline Library from ESO
The Common Pipeline Library (CPL) comprises a set of ISO-C libraries
that provide a comprehensive, efficient and robust software toolkit.
It forms a basis for the creation of automated astronomical
data-reduction tasks (known as "pipelines").
The CPL was developed to standardise the way VLT instrument pipelines
are built, to shorten their development cycle and to ease their
maintenance. However, it may be more generally applied to any similar
application, and the details of the CPL code have been engineered in
a way to make the library portable and flexible, as well as
minimising external dependencies.
