Abstract: SFITSIO is newly developed FITS I/O library to minimize user effort. This next-generation library supports writing C-language code, and users can intuitively write their code for FITS I/O. The APIs represent the structure of FITS, therefore, users do not forget usage of APIs. By using SFITSIO, users can escape the nuisance that they frequently read the manual document when writing their code using current FITS libraries. The SFITSIO supports r/w of Image, Ascii Table and Binary Table, and some CFITSIO extensions. Access to the compressed files via network is also supported.
