**otos in=**orbit
**out=**snapshot [parameter=value]

**in=***in-file*- input file,
will be in
*orbit(5NEMO)*format [no default] **out=***out-file*- output file, in
*snapshot(5NEMO)*format [no default] **orbit=***n1,n2,..*- Orbit numbers to select.
A ordered list can be given, the word "
**all**" is reserved to select all orbits for copy. The first orbit is numbered 0. [default:**all**] **maxsteps=***max-steps*- Steps allocated such that largest orbit fits in here. [default:
**5000**] **stride=***stride*- Stride through an orbit. If 1, all points are copied to the snapshot, numbers
larger than 1 select every
*stride-th*particle from the orbit to be copied. [default:**1**] **nbody=***maxbody*- Since the orbit file is only scanned once, we
need to supply an estimate how many bodies to allocate for the final snapshot.
[default:
**10000**] **scan=t|f**- If this mode it
**true**, program continues to scan all orbits, according to input parameters**orbit=**and**stride=**, even if all allocated space in the snapshot has been filled. At the end it reports on the total number of bodies needed. [default:**f**]
