# libmseed - The Mini-SEED library
The Mini-SEED library provides a framework for manipulation of SEED
data records including the unpacking and packing of data records.
Functionality is also included for managing waveform data as
All structures of SEED 2.4 data records are supported with the
following exceptions: Blockette 2000 opaque data which has an unknown
data structure by definition and Blockette 405 which depends on full
SEED (SEED including full ASCII headers) for a full data description.
The library should work in Linux, BSD (and derivatives like macOS),
Solaris and Win32 environments.
The [Wiki](https://github.com/iris-edu/libmseed/wiki) provides an
overview of using the library. For function level documentation,
man pages are included in the [doc](doc) directory.
