CFITSIO is a library of ANSI C routines for reading and writing FITS
format data files. A set of Fortran-callable wrapper routines are also
included for the convenience of Fortran programmers. This README file
gives a brief summary of how to build and test CFITSIO, but the CFITSIO
User's Guide, found in the files cfitsio.doc (plain text), cfitsio.tex
(LaTeX source file), or (postscript format), should be
referenced for the latest and most complete information.
