NAME

aida2flat - Convert AIDA data files to a flat format

SYNOPSIS

aida2flat [ options] aidafile [aidafile2 ...]

DESCRIPTION

Convert AIDA data files to a flat format which is more human-readable then the XML (and by default also plottable directly using make-plots). The output is by default written out to standard output unless the --split, --smart-output, --gnuplot, or --output options are specified. When specifying either input or output filenames, a '-' is used to refer to stdin or stdout as appropriate.
Histograms can also be filtered by AIDA path, using the -m or -M options for a positive or negative regex pattern patch respectively.

OPTIONS

-h, --help
show this help message and exit
-o OUTPUT, --output=OUTPUT
Write all histos to a single output file, rather than the default writing to stdout. stdout can be explicitly specified by setting '-' as the output filename. This option will be disregarded if --split, --smart-output, or --gnuplot is specified.
-s, --split
Write each histo to a separate output file, with names based on the histo path
-S, --smart-output
Write to output files with names based on the corresponding input filename. This option will be disregarded if --split is specified.
-g, --gnuplot
Provide output suitable for Gnuplot's 'plot "foo.dat" with xye'. This option implies --split and will override --output or --smart-output
--plotinfodir=PLOTINFODIR
directory which may contain plot header information
-m PATHPATTERNS, --match=PATHPATTERNS
Only write out histograms whose $path/$name string matches these regexes
-M PATHUNPATTERNS, --unmatch=PATHUNPATTERNS
Exclude histograms whose $path/$name string matches these regexes
