nxconvert(1) convert a NeXus file between different on disk file formats


nxconvert [-x|-h4|-h5|-d|-o keepws|-o table] [infile [outfile]]


NeXus supports different file formats for physical storage on disk or other media. nxconvert allows the user to convert a file to a different backend.

If no output file is supplied on the command line, the program asks for one interactively. Same if the input file is not given.


The following options are supported:
make outfile XML
make outfile HDF4 (this is the default)
make outfile HDF5
make a XML based definition file used for validating NeXus files (i.e. remove the data).
-o keepws
the XML file created should preserve whitespace.
-o table
the XML file created should write the data in a table format where the columns and rows are easily imported into spreadsheet programs.


nxconvert was originally written by Freddie Akeroyd and Ray Osborn.
