gpiv_piv2vec(1) Converting of PIV data.


gpiv_piv2vec [-al length] [-au units] [-flipx] [-flipy] [-g] [-h | fB--help] [-nd] [-k] [-p | --print] [-s scale] [-tl label] [-v | fB--version] [-xl label] [-yl label] [filename]

< stdin > stdout


gpiv_piv2vec adds an header to piv data for a vector plot with Plotmtv. This program does not use the parameter resources from libgpiv.


-al length
Plots a vector annotation of length.

-au units
Plots a vector annotation of units.

Flips the plot in x-direction; x data from high to low.

Flips the plot in y-direction; y data from high to low.

Displays piv data graphically. filename has to be defined.

-h | fB--help
On-line help.

Combined with -g; adds option -nodate (only ps output doesn't contain date!).

Keep plot-file.

-p | --print
Plots the output on screen with Plotmtv if filename has been used.

-s scale
Vector scale (default: 1 px).

-tl label
Defines top label (title) (default: filename, if used).

-v | fB--version
Prints version information on standard output, then exits successfully.

-xl label
Defines x-label (default: "x (pixels)").

-yl label
Defines y-label (default: "y (pixels)").

Uses PIV file instead of stdin and stdout. The output will be written to filename.vec.

The program has been tested for PIV data. Watch out for filenames containing dots, apart from the separation with extension.
