NAME

convfrm - convert old format run files to new format  

SYNOPSIS

convfrm runfile ...  

DESCRIPTION

Convfrm allows you to salvage runs of data captured before the current version of dsepr(1) became available. For each runfile name specified, convfrm checks to make sure it is a valid run of the old format, then converts the file to the new format.

The file name suffix .frm is appended to each runfile name specified, if not already present.

The conversion involves expanding the run header, shuffling fields around in this header, and faking up information not available in the old format. Calibration information is available only for the first untriggered waveform and the first two triggered traces. No channel name strings are set, as these exist only in the new format.  

DIAGNOSTICS

If any error occurs, convfrm prints a message, and goes on to the next file. The exit status is 0 if no errors were detected, 1 if some error(s) occurred.  

FILES

*.frm          runfiles specified

*.frX          temporary runfiles of new format created
