**********************************************************************
 SZIP compatibility
**********************************************************************

Libaec includes a free drop-in replacement for the SZIP
library[1]. Just replace SZIP's shared library libsz.so* with
libaec.so* and libsz.so* from libaec. Code which is dynamically linked
with SZIP such as HDF5 should continue to work without re-compilation.

HDF5 files which contain SZIP encoded data can be decoded by HDF5
using libaec and vice versa.
