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 com-
pared for crossover analysis. You must run x2ys_init to initialize the
tag before you can run the indexing.
files 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
-T Sets the data set TAG which among other things sets the defini-
-V 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
