# SFF++ library: reading and writing SFF from C++
# ===============================================
#
# The library is designed to provide a tool for SFF (Stuttgart File Format)
# writing and reading. It uses libgsexx for the GSE2 layer of SFF. While
# libgsexx does not explicitely use an array class for time series, libsffxx
# provides whole array reading and writing functionality. For this purpose
# the library uses code from libaff.
#
# A major advantage of the library is a feature of libgsexx. With this code
# you can deal with time series of arbitrary length. In particular no
# temporary character buffer for CM6 decoding and encoding is needed (like it
# is in the Fortran library). This means, on the other hand, that the library
# has no information to fill the nchar field of the DAST line.
#
# Warning:
# The library will write -1 to the nchar field of the DAST line. You will
# need an updated version (2.00 or higher) of libstuff or libsff (Fortran
# version) to read data files written with libsffxx to Fortran code.
#
# See the doxygen generated documentation for details.
#
# Installation instructions

# To instell the library together with the doxygen documentation,
# use target all. Note that this requires doxygen to be installed.
# The doxygen documentation will be placed in $(DOXYWWWPATH).
#
# Look at sfftest.cc for a brief example on using the code.
#
# The binary library libsffxx.a will be placed in $(LOCLIBDIR). The prototype
# files will be copied to $(LOCINCLUDEDIR).
#
# The doxygen documentation will be placed in $(DOXYWWWPATH).
#
# This library requires code from libgsexx, libaff, and libtime.
# The testprogram sfftest requires libtfxx in addition.
