CERNLIB is a suite of data analysis tools and libraries created for
use in physics experiments, but also with applications to other
fields such as the biological sciences.
PAW is an interactive program providing interactive graphical presentation
and statistical and mathematical analysis tools.  It is designed to work
on objects familiar to physicists such as histograms, event files (Ntuples),
vectors, etc.
The program is linked statically against the CERN libraries on 64-bit
architectures in order to function properly, as its design is not
very 64-bit clean.

paw (1:2.14.04.dfsg.2-6) unstable; urgency=low
* Patch 302: minor fixes to paw script to allow it to properly call binaries
in $CERNLIB/$CERN_LEVEL/bin if those environment variables are set.
* Patch 804: fix Debian-specific bug that caused PAW to abort if the
difference between two pointers used by COMIS was in the range given by
INT_MAX < diff <= UINT_MAX.  Thanks to Giuseppe Tagliente
<> for the bug report (by private email).

paw (1:2.14.04.dfsg.2-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Patch 804: omit "extern" from common block declaration since the "extern"
is included in the cfortran.h COMMON_BLOCK_DEF macro as of cfortran.h
version 4.4-12.
* Build-Depend on cfortran (>= 4.4-12) for this change.
* Patch 307: refresh internal copy of cfortran.h to 4.4-12 (although we do
not use this internal copy in the build, it's best to be consistent).
2008-04-21 - Kevin B. McCarty <>
paw (1:2.14.04.dfsg.2-4) unstable; urgency=low
* Create symlinks from /usr/share/icons/hicolor/{32x32,48x48}/apps/paw.xpm
to /usr/share/pixmaps/paw{32x32,48x48}.xpm in paw-common package.
* Apply patch to Paw++ desktop file from Patrice Dumas.
* Run dh_icons in debian/rules binary-indep target.
* Build-Depend on debhelper (>= 6.0.12) since we need fix for #448094.
2008-02-25 - Kevin B. McCarty <>
paw (1:2.14.04.dfsg.2-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix unescaped hyphens in paw.1 man page.
* Remove deprecated Encoding field from Paw++ desktop entry.
* Upload to unstable.
