We do also request that you explain to MCNC the nature of any derivative works that you distribute, together with appropriate links as to their nature and availability, etc.
Further, note that the EDSS/Models-3 I/O API depends in an
essential manner upon the contents of INCLUDE files
Any changes are likely to result in very obscure,
difficult-to-diagnose bugs caused by an inconsistency between
standard "libioapi.a" object-libraries and whatever code is
compiled with the resulting modified
By making any changes to any of these
the user explicitly agrees that in the case any assistance
is required of MCNC or of the I/O API author, Carlie J. Coats, Jr.
as a result of such changes, the user and/or his project or
contract agrees to reimburse mcnc and/or the i/o api author,
Carlie J. Coats, Jr., at a rate triple the normal
contract rate for the services required.

The author would also like to thank the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), and its technology-transfer arm Unidata, on top of whose netCDF interface for persistent data access the I/O API was built, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, on top of whose PVM-3 mailbox system the cooperating-process coupling-mode of the I/O API was built. Without these, it would have been much more difficult to construct an easy-to-use, multi-mode modeler-oriented machine-independent selective direct access interface to air-quality-oriented data.
