The Common Package

The common package defines general purpose types and routines used extensively elsewhere in Gandalf, and also available to other application code using Gandalf. To use any function or structure in the common package use the declaration
      #include <gandalf/common.h>
but including individual module header files instead will speed up program compilation. We describe each module in the common package below.
