Bug#918796: ITP: yorick-full -- full installation of the Yorick interpreter and add-ons
Owner: Thibaut Paumard <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* Package name : yorick-full
Version : 2.2.04+dfsg1+full
Upstream Author : Thibaut Paumard <email@example.com>

Programming Lang: None (metapackage)
Description : full installation of the Yorick interpreter and add-ons
This binary package is currently built by the yorick source package with the
severe drawback that any RC bug in any yorick add-on immediately makes the full
Yorick system RC buggy. I'm splitting this metapackage out of the yorick source
package to alleviate that.
This is the long description:
Yorick is an interpreted programming language for:
* scientific simulations or calculations
* postprocessing or steering large simulation codes
* interactive scientific graphics
* reading, writing, and translating large files of numbers
The yorick-full metapackage installs Yorick together with the full set
of add-ons packaged for Debian.
You may prefer to only install the yorick package and cherry-pick the
yorick-* add-ons you need.
If you need MPY, the MPI parallel version of Yorick, please install
either yorick-mpy-openmpi or yorick-mpy-mpich2 in addition.
