Name

snappat - convert snapshot to a regular Particle-Attribute-Time image

Synopsis

snappat [parameter=value]

Description

Convert a snapshot to a Particle-Attribute-Time (PAT) datacube. Use ccdfits(1NEMO) to convert to a fits(5NEMO) file for usage in other programs.

Parameters

The following parameters are recognized in any order if the keyword is also given:
in=
Input file (snapshot) [???]
out=
Output file (image) [???]
options=
Things to output [x,y,z,vx,vy,vz]
times=
Times to select snapshot [all]
ntime=
if used, pre-allocate this number of snapshots []

Caveats

It is useful to know the number of snapshots ahead of time, using the ntime= keyword. If the number of snapshots was larger, the last few planes in the cube are garbage, if fewers, snapshots are written in sets of that size.
