IEEEIO is a compact library for storing multidimensional scientific data in a binary format that can be transported between different computer systems. It derives its name from the fact that it depends on the IEEE 754 standard representations for floating point numbers to achieve its portability. It provides many of the capabilities of the HDF-SDS and NetCDF file formats however it is much smaller and simpler than either. In addition, it is reasonably fast when compared to raw f77 unformatted IO. The programming interface allows complete interoperability with the HDF and NetCDF formats if those libraries are linked in. It is not intended to supercede these formats. It is designed to replace them only where the extra functionality and consequent size of these libraries is not desired.
