**********************************************************************
 SZIP compatibility
**********************************************************************

Libaec includes a free drop-in replacement for the SZIP
library[1]. Just replace SZIP's shared library libsz.so* with
libaec.so* and libsz.so* from libaec. For Windows the DLLs are called
SZIP.DLL and AEC.DLL. Code which is dynamically linked with SZIP such
as HDF5 should continue to work with libaec. No re-compilation
required.

HDF5 files which contain SZIP encoded data can be decoded by HDF5
using libaec and vice versa.
