# Documentation
- CDI C Manual: `./doc/cdi_cman.pdf`
- CDI Fortran Manual: `./doc/cdi_fman.pdf`
# Installation
- Run ./configure, with some options if you wish. The standard options are documented in the INSTALL file. The configuration script has some more options; type 'configure -h' to see them. The most interesting ones are the usual --prefix=<installation directory> and --with-netcdf=<netCDF root directory> to enable netCDF support.
- Do "make" to compile the library.
- (Optional) Do "make install", possibly as root if the destination permissions require that. This installs CDI in the directory specified during configuration. The default prefix is /usr/local.
# Porting
This library was designed for maximum portability. It is written entirely
in ANSI C99, and will compile on most UNIX platforms.
The FORTRAN 77 interface is using the cfortran.h macros from
