Further, note that the EDSS/Models-3 I/O API depends in an essential
manner upon the contents of INCLUDE files
changes to them are likely to result in very obscure,
difficult-to-diagnose bugs caused by an inconsistency between
standard libioapi.a object-libraries and whatever code is
compiled with the resulting modified
making any changes to any of these
INCLUDE files, the
user explicitly agrees that in the case any assistance is
required of MCNC, BAMS, UNC IE, or of the I/O API author,
Carlie J. Coats, Jr. as a result of such changes, the user
and/or his project or contract agrees to reimburse that party at a
rate triple the normal contract rate for the services

The author would also like to thank the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), and its technology-transfer arm Unidata, on top of whose netCDF interface for persistent data access the I/O API was built, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, on top of whose PVM-3 mailbox system the cooperating-process coupling-mode of the I/O API was built. Without these, it would have been much more difficult to construct an easy-to-use, multi-mode modeler-oriented machine-independent selective direct access interface to air-quality-oriented data.
