dump_util — Automatically convert AMPAC binary files (.vis and .csm) to corresponding plain text files.


This utility converts AMPAC binary files to plain text files. The visdump utility is used for converting .vis files to plain text .visdump files. Similary, catcsm is applied to transform .csm to .csmdump files. The main difference between this utility and the other two is that it can be applied to multiple files at one time.


dump_util [-r] [filename(s)]



Recursively search directories for files. [default search current directory only].


One or more AMPAC binary files of type *.vis or *.csm. Multiple filenames can be entered separated by spaces. UNIX file globbing (for example, using * as a wildcard) is also supported.
