CERNLIB PAW library - portion without Lesstif (development files)

CERNLIB is a suite of data analysis tools and libraries created for use in physics experiments, but also with applications to other fields such as the biological sciences.

This package includes a static version of (most of) the library pawlib, required by the CERNLIB application PAW. In addition to the internal workings of PAW, pawlib also provides the COMIS FORTRAN interpreter and the SIGMA array manipulation language. The Lesstif-dependent parts of the library are provided in the libpawlib-lesstif3-dev package.

The COMIS portion of this library is functional on 64-bit machines only when statically linked.

Package version:1:2.14.04.dfsg.2-8


64-bit specific CERNLIB issues

If you are intending to use CERN libraries on a 64-bit platform (such as
the Itanium [ia64], Alpha, or AMD64 / EM64t [amd64] Debian architectures),
you should be aware of some potential problems.

CERNLIB was never designed to run on machines where the size of a pointer
is 64 bits.  The code implicitly assumes that
	sizeof(void *) == s


Notes on libpawlib2-dev

1) This package does not include the Lesstif-dependent parts of Pawlib.
Those can be found in the package libpawlib-lesstif3-dev.

2) Note that much of this library is functional on 64-bit machines only when
statically linked.  Please see the file README.64-bit for more information.
An example illustrating some other things to take care about is gi
