A wrapper of the International Astronomical Union's SOFA lbrary
pysofa2 is a module for using International Astronomical Union's (http://www.iau.org/) SOFA library (http://www.iausofa.org/) in python. It is inspired by original pysofa implementation of Frederic Grollier. It extends the original pysofa module by distributing and building the SOFA C library with the package, eliminiting the need for the end-user to build the libraries separaetly from the package installtion.
Like pysofa, pysofa2 is not a port of SOFA routines but a wrapper around the SOFA C library. Thus, no calculations are made into the pysofa software, they are all delegated to the underlying SOFA_C library.
