sdds2mplextracts data columns or parameters from an SDDS data set and creates
mpldata files. The program allows creation of
mpllabels from SDDS parameters. This tool is primarily of interest to APS users, some of whom still use the older mpl Toolkit. It may be of interest to others who are interested in a simple format for use with programs that don't need the full power of SDDS protocol. Such applications can use sdds2mpl and mpl2sdds to mediate between themselves and SDDS-compliant programs.
-pipe[=input]-- The standard SDDS Toolkit pipe option.
-announceOpenings-- Requests that an informational message be printed whenever a new output file is opened.
-separatePages-- Requests that tabular-data column output from separate pages in the SDDS data set go to separate files.
printfformat specifications for parameters that will be printed on the title line of the
mplfile or set of files. If
-separateis not given or if the data is for parameters, the name of the file is rootname_xName_yName.out. For column output, if
-separateis given, the names of the files are rootname_N_xName_yName.out, where N is the page number. This option may be given any number of times.
