mrr2c

Convert Metek MRR-2 data files to HDF.

Usage

mrr2c [--debug] <infile> <outfile>

Arguments:

  • infile - MRR-2 raw, pro or ave file
  • outfile - output file (HDF5)
  • debug - enable debugging output

Install

It is recommended to run mrr2c on Linux or a unix-like operating system.

Requirements:

  • Python 2.7
  • pip
  • libhdf5

Python packages:

  • numpy >= 1.12.1
  • h5py >= 2.2.1
  • pydash >= 4.0.3

To install with the Python package manager (automatically installs required packages):

pip install mrr2c

To install from source:

pip install numpy h5py pydash
python setup.py install
