Silo is a library for reading and writing a wide variety of scientific data to binary, disk files. The files Silo produces and the data within them can be easily shared and exchanged between wholly independently developed applications running on disparate computing platforms. Consequently, Silo facilitates the development of general purpose tools for processing scientific data. One of the more popular tools that process Silo data files is the VisIt visualization tool.

Usage: include $(HPC_SILO_DIR)/include in your makefile, then compile $(CC) -c yourfile.c and link with $(CLINKER) -o yourprog yourfile.o $(HPC_SILO_LIB).
