Magics++ is the latest generation of the ECMWF's Meteorological plotting
software MAGICS. Although completely redesigned in C++, it is intended to be
as backwards-compatible as possible with the Fortran interface.
Besides its programming interfaces (Fortran and C), Magics++ offers MagML,
a plot description language based on XML aimed at automatic web production.
This package contains the MagcML binary that may be used with magics++.
