GoDoc

A Go wrapper around libnecpp, which is a C library for nec++, which is a C++ rewrite of nec2c, which is itself a C rewrite/translation of the original FORTRAN code for NEC2, an antenna modelling package.

Installation

This package requires nec++ to be installed. On Linux, it's often found in the distribution packages. Otherwise, and on other Unix-y OSes, it should build per the instructions in the necpp library.

Installing nec++ on Mac OS X is likely to be more difficult, because clang gets unhappy about some of the Fortranisms still creeping around in the code. Even when that's cleared up by applying a couple of the pull requests on the github page, you still need to configure nec++ with the --without-lapack option. A procudure for installing necpp smoothly is in the works.

This package should be able to build on Windows, assuming you've been able to build nec++ with the instructions for Windows on the github page.
