NAME

proa2run - convert ProAnalyst export text file to runfile format  

SYNOPSIS

proa2run txtfile [runfile]  

DESCRIPTION

Proa2run converts an ASCII text file of comma-separated values, which has been exported from the ProAnalyst motion capture software, into a runfile. The txtfile specifies the name of the input file to be converted, and the optional runfile argument specifies the output run file name. If the runfile is not specified, proa2run uses the same basename as the specified txtfile, with the .txt or .csv suffix removed.

The specified txtfile will be analysed to find out the sampling rate (i.e. frame rate) of the samples, as well as the contents of the columns of data. Angle data will be expanded to two columns, to get both inside and outside angles (360 - x), and both will be converted. Column headings will be parsed and extended with alternate unit specifiers so the correct units appear in the output in the analysis program.

The txtfile must have at least 3 columns, with the first column containing the Index field (ignored), and the second one containing the Time field, used to calculate the sampling rate. The remaining columns can be X, Y and Angle fields in any order, and will be converted to waveforms in the runfile.
