Perl extension for handling of WMO BUFR files

BUFR = Binary Universal Form for the Representation of meteorological data. BUFR is approved by WMO World Meteorological Organization as the standard universal exchange format for meteorological observations, gradually replacing a lot of older alphanumeric data formats.

This module provides methods for decoding and encoding BUFR messages, and for displaying information in BUFR B and D tables and in BUFR flag and code tables.

Installing this module also installs some programs bufrread.pl, bufrresolve.pl, bufrencode.pl, bufr_reencode.pl and bufralter.pl. See https//wiki.met.no/bufr.pm/start for examples of use. For the majority of potential users of GeoBUFR I would expect these programs to be all that you will need GeoBUFR for.
