Handle World Coordinate Systems in Astronomy (main shared lib)

AST implements an object oriented model for describing physical coordinate systems, and the transformations that exist between them.

It provides a comprehensive range of facilities for attaching world coordinate systems (WCS) to astronomical data and for retrieving and manipulating that information.

It has built-in intelligence for identifying types of celestial, spectral, time and other coordinate systems (including compound systems that combine axes of different types) and determining how to transform between them. This allows general purpose code to be written that makes no assumptions about the nature of the coordinate systems.

This package contains the main shared library.
