Parasolascii : A simple parser
for the POLDER/P...

Language/Sofware: C
Application type(s): Data Conversion
Related project(s): PARASOL, POLDER
Displays the data from the PARASOL ( and POLDER ) binary files in plain text. You specify the data you want to be displayed, in the order you wish, and they will be extracted into columns (separated by tabulations) in this very order. You are then free to redirect the data into the tool of your choice (a plotter, a data filter, or an hand-made program). Of course, calls to parasolascii are scriptable
