x2sys_binlist - Create bin-index files from track data files


x2sys_binlist file(s) [ -TTAG ] [ -V ]


x2sys_binlist reads one or more track data files and produces a multi- segment ascii track bin index listing. The input files can be of any format, which must be described and passed with the -T option. The bin index listing is a crude representation of where the track goes and is used by the data archivist to determine which tracks need to be compared for crossover analysis. You must run x2ys_init to initialize the tag before you can run the indexing.

Can be one or more binary or ASCII data files. To give a list of names, use `cat list_of_files`.


No space between the option flag and the associated arguments

Sets the data set TAG which among other things sets the definition file.
Selects verbose mode, which will send progress reports to stderr [Default runs "silently"].


To create a bin index table from the old-style GMT MGG file c2104.gmt using a global, 1x1 degree bin system, do

x2sys_binlist c2104.gmt -TGMT > index.d

To create a bin index list of all MGD77 files residing in the current directory at a bin resolution of 30x30 minutes, run

x2sys_binlist *.mgd77 -TMGD77 > index.d
