sddstransposeviews the numerical tabular data of the input file as though it formed a matrix, and produces an output file with data corresponding to the transpose of the input file matrix. In other words, the columns of tabular data of the input file become rows in the output file. String column data are not transposed but are stored as string parameters in the output file. Operating on the output file with a second
sddstranposecommand essentially recovers the original input file.
The column names for the output file are generated either from the data in a selected string column in the input file, from the value of the command line option -root, or from an internal default.
The column names of the input file are collected and made into a string column in the output file.
