The convrt utility may be used to convert DATA files from the Eloquence
format into text files.
usage: convrt [options] file [file ...]
-v = verbose
-s = write to stdout
The resulting file is assigned the same name as the DATA file plus
the extension '.txt' in the current directory.
If the file already has an extension, it will be replaced by .txt.
Any files without a .DATA extension are silently ignored.
The options are:
Eloquence DATA files are binary files with a record length and
record/field types. The convrt utility may be used to convert
them into text files.
The conversion process will stop once non-text data is encountered.
- The -help option displays a brief help text.
- List files being processed (to stderr).
- Write to stdout.
The example below will convert the files dbmap1.DATA and dbmap2.DATA
into text files:
convrt -v dbmap*.DATA
