The IRAP CEFLIB library is a set of tools, written in C langage, which can be used to read efficiently Ascii files in CEF format.

The Cluster Exchange Format (CEF) has been defined by ESA for the needs of the Cluster Active Archive (CAA).

The CEFLIB is divided in several parts :

  • The main library, able to load in memory and parse a CEF file content.

  • A IDL interface, in order to call the previous one from IDL

  • A same interface for MATLAB

  • A last one for Python language.
