### NDF2DA

Converts an NDF to a direct-access unformatted file

#### Description:

This application converts an NDF to a direct-access unformatted file, which is equivalent to fixed-length records, or a data stream suitable for reading by C routines. Only one of the array components may be copied to the output file.

#### Usage:

ndf2da in out [comp] [noperec]

#### Parameters:

The NDF component to be copied. It may be "Data", "Quality" or "Variance". ["Data"]
Input NDF data structure. The suggested default is the current NDF if one exists, otherwise it is the current value.
The number of data values per record of the output file. It must be positive. The suggested default is the current value. [The first dimension of the NDF]
##### OUT = FILENAME (Write)
Name of the output direct-access unformatted file.

#### Examples:

ndf2da cluster cluster.dat
This copies the data array of the NDF called cluster to a direct-access unformatted file called cluster.dat. The number of data values per record is equal to the size of the first dimension of the NDF.
ndf2da cluster cluster.dat v
This copies the variance of the NDF called cluster to a direct-access unformatted file called cluster.dat. The number of variance values per record is equal to the size of the first dimension of the NDF.
ndf2da cluster cluster.dat noperec=12
This copies the data array of the NDF called cluster to a direct-access unformatted file called cluster.dat. There are twelve data values per record in cluster.dat.

#### Notes:

The details of the conversion are as follows:
• the NDF array as selected by COMP is written to the unformatted file in records.

• all other NDF components are lost.

CONVERT: DA2NDF.
