NAME

X-GEN - xdump  

SYNOPSIS

xdump [filetype [filename]]  

DESCRIPTION

"xdump" provides a way of dumping the contents of any of the X-GEN binary files in an ASCII format. The first few lines of the dump are sent to the standard output. The entire dump is sent to the environment variable UDUMP.

The program can be run with no arguments, in which case it enters an interactive mode. In this case the user can specify the file type and file name in response to a ">" prompt, and the program prompts for certain details regarding the kind of dump requested. Thus for an image dump, it asks you to specify the (X,Y) center of the region to be dumped and the frame range to dump.

Otherwise, the specific file types that can be dumped are parameters to this call.

<Filetype>
is the type of file to be dumped.
<Filename>
if specified, this temporarily overrides the current
environment variable named by <filetype> with the name <filename>; if it isn't specified, the current value of that environment variable is used.
<Filetype> can be:
IMAGE:
Print a dump of the header of a detector image to the
environment variable XLOG. The image chosen is the one currently associated with the environment variable IMAGE.
CALDATA:
Print a dump of the header of a detector image to
the environment variable XLOG. The image chosen is the one currently associated with the environment variable IMAGE. This option differs from the IMAGE option in that it is faster at reading the second and subsequent images in a series. So if you request a lengthy series of images (e.g. a 15x15 pixel dump around (X,Y)=(417,237) for images 28 through 38) it will run faster with the CALDATA option.
AMASK:
AMASK is the file that contains the list of
pixels considered to be "active", i.e. we expect to be able to make accurate intensity measurements there.
USPLINE:
USPLINE is the file created by "calibrate", and it contains
the mapping that converts detector pixels to cm and back again.
CENTROIDS:
CENTROIDS is the file that contains a list of
three- dimensional centroids, one for each reflection found in a run of "spots" or "integrate" followed by "reduce -c".
WMASK:
WMASK is the file created by "spots" that contains
the three-dimensional model profiles derived from the bright reflections in each of 12 detector regions.
UPARAMS:
UPARAMS is the file that contains the crystal and
detector parameters, as originally input or determined by auto-indexing and which are refined in "refine".
UREFLS:
UREFLS is the file created by "integrate",
and it contains h, k, l, intensity, and sigma, plus numerous relevant run-time attributes of each reflection.
MULTIREF:
MULTIREF is the file that gets manipulated by the
post-processing programs "scalek", "reject", "makemu", and "stats"; it is produced by "reduce" or "mrmerge". It contains a header and a record for each reflection that includes information about each individual observation.
