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.
