CERNLIB data analysis suite - core library (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.

The packlib library includes a great deal of CERNLIB core functionality. Best-known are probably the MINUIT function minimization routines, the HBOOK histogramming routines, and KUIP (Kit for a User Interface Package). Other subsystems include CSPACK, a set of client-server routines; FFREAD, a format-free input processing system for FORTRAN; and ZEBRA, a data structure management package.

This package contains a static version of packlib. Also included are C and FORTRAN header files. Please note that the graphical functionality of KUIP has been split out into the separate libpacklib-lesstif1-dev package so that this package need not depend upon the X and Lesstif libraries.

Package version:20061220+dfsg3-2


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 libpacklib1-dev:

If you are looking for the Motif-based version of KUIP (Kit for a User
Interface Package), you will find it in the package libpacklib-lesstif1-dev.
It was split out from this package so that users aren't forced to install the
Lesstif and X11 libraries if they only want to use Packlib for a text-based

If you are compiling code on a 64


cernlib (2006.dfsg.2-7) experimental; urgency=low

    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.
