I'm trying to make an interface to the Proj library for handling geographic coordinates, but I am having trouble with "const" parameters ... usually things like constant character strings, but sometimes more exotic. Is there a "const" indicator I can use when defining C types?
I plan on a netCDF interface too, but proj seemed easier to start with ;-)
@snarkypenguin unfortunately const is not supported by the C interface... it has been on my todo for a while. most C compilers have a switch to not treat the absence of const as an error, so this might be a workable temporary measure
@amirouche yes I'll reboot the server later today (actually turned it off yesterday due to overheating and forgot to turn it back on)
Thankyou, I didn't even think of that (randall smack his forehead foolishly). When it is working and tested, I'd like to contribute it to the dumping ground.
@snarkypenguin I'm sure a better place than the dumping ground can be found for your module. more on this later...
@feeley Are you going to release a package manager?
