As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 Imported files to GNU Astronomy Utilities
    2 =========================================

    4 The contents of this directory (except this README file!) are imported
    5 to GNU Astronomy Utilities (Gnuastro) from other projects. Therefore
    6 they are not maintained by Gnuastro developers and are kept separately
    7 in this directory for clarity and easy maintenance.

    9 In the version controlled repository this directory only contains this
   10 single README file. It is populated during the bootstrapping process
   11 (see ../README-hacking for more on bootstrapping, or the
   12 "Bootstrapping" section in the manual). In the distribution tar-ball
   13 this directory is populated with the necessary files.
   14 
   15 The projects that were used are:
   16 
   17  - GNU Portability Library (Gnulib):
   18 
   19        https://www.gnu.org/software/gnulib/
   20 
   21    This is a very useful collection of libraries (from GNU C library)
   22    to enable non-complying operating systems to run programs based on
   23    it. It also contains various very useful scripts needed for the GNU
   24    build process.
   25 
   26 
   27 
   28  - GNU Autoconf-archives:
   29 
   30        https://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf-archive/
   31 
   32    These archives contain a large number of M4 scripts that can be
   33    used at ./configure time.
   34 
   35 
   36 
   37 We are most grateful to the maintainers of these projects which allow
   38 Gnuastro to be easily installed on a very large set of Unix-like
   39 operating systems.
