The MINC format

It is possible to build MINC format files using only NetCDF function calls, however a C include file is provided to facilitate (and help ensure) adherence to the standard. This file defines useful constants, standard dimension, variable and attribute names and some attribute values. It also declares the functions defined in a library of minc convenience functions, designed to make an application programmer's life easier.
