CERNLIB data analysis suite - file transfer program

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.

ZFTP is a macro-extensible file transfer program which supports the transfer of formatted, unformatted and ZEBRA RZ files (CMZ, HBOOK, etc.). It provides a common interface on all systems and avoids the problems of file format conversion that occur when transferring CERNLIB files between different architectures.

Except for the special treatment of CERNLIB files and use of a different port, zftp is very similar to an FTP client. Unless you are already familiar with this program, it will almost certainly be useless to you.

Package version:20061220+dfsg3-2


Notes on zftp:

This is the client program for the ZEBRA FTP (zftp) protocol of CERNLIB.
Like other FTP-type programs, the ZFTP protocol transmits passwords in
cleartext.  It would therefore be wise to use zftp only within a closed LAN
with trusted users.  To connect to a remote host, the host must be running
the zserv daemon (for Debian, part of the pawserv package) from inetd.  Se

    The default FORTRAN compiler on Debian is now gfortran, not g77.  In this
    Debian release of cernlib, CERN libraries have been built with the new
    gfortran compiler.
    For the moment, for backwards compatibility it is possible to install
    gfortran-based and g77-based CERN library runtime packages in parallel.
