Name

snapmradii - print lagrangian mass radii in a snapshot

Synopsis

snapscale in=in_file [parameter=value] ...

Description

snapmradii prints a table of the fractional lagrangian mass-radii of a snapshot. The snapshot will be sorted internally by increasing radius (which can be changed by using sort=), there is no need to use snapsort(1NEMO) preceding this call.

Parameters

The following parameters are recognized:
in=in_file
input file, in snapshot format. Default: none.
fraction=f1,f2,...
Fractional mass radii. They must be sorted and between 0 and 1 (inclusive). [Default: 0.1:0.9:0.1]
tab=t|f
Output in the form of a table of mass fraction vs. radius? The normal output mode is one snapshot per output row, with time, and the mass fractions [Default: f]
log=t|f
Output the radii in logarithmic units [Default: f]
sort=sort_var
Sorting variable used to sort the particles. Any bodytrans(3NEMO) expression can be used. Default: r. Default

Example

The following example shows the evolution of 10% lagrangian mass radius and outputs the result in a graph
    snapmradii snap.dat 0.05 |\
            tabplot - xlab=time ylab="10% Mass radius"

The following example shows the cumulative mass distribution function for the third snapshot in a large simulation, and plots it:

    snaptrim snap.dat - times=#3 | snapmradii - 0.01:0.99:01 |\
            tabplot - xlab="Mass fraction" ylab=Radius

Bugs

Doesn’t handle snapshots with zero mass very well.

Doesn’t deal with snapshots where there is no stars in one of the fraction bins requested. Since linear interpolation is used, some crazy larger radius is reported.
