  Description     : Classes for general FITS handling
 Classes for general FITS handling, including NDX, NDArray and
 StarTable implementations.
 Some of these classes use the nom.tam.fits package (libfits-java) for
 low-level FITS access, though several of them do most of the handling
 in customised ways themselves for efficiency reasons.

The package will be maintained by the Debian Astro team. It is part of
the effort to package the Virtual Observatory Java tools from Starlink.

A git repository will be created at


The package depends on the creation of starjava-array, starjava-table,
and starjava-util.
