CRaTER -- c_zip

NAME

c_zip -- Generate a zipped archive of packet files

USAGE

     c_zip [-h] [-v] [file] [file2] ... [filen]

FLAGS

      -h      gets full help message
      -v      makes the output verbose (to STDERR)

DESCRIPTION

If a single file name is given, that is taken to represent the basename of a contiguous set of archive files labeled

    archive-xxyyaa.bin
    archive-xxyyaa-1.bin
    archive-xxyyaa-2.bin

Alternatively, if more than one input file is given as argument (such as in a wildcard, viz: CRAT*) the files are simply accepted as given.

In either event, the files are concatenated into a single, compressed datafile using the gzip format. The file name will be based upon the basename of the first file in the argument list.

The LRO-standard header for the resultant file will be copied from the first file read; all other headers will be deleted.

The original files will not be deleted.

ENVIRONMENT

    perl5.002     Minimum version of Perl interpreter required

BUGS

The output file name of ``name.bin.gz'', when decompressed to ``name.bin'' will, in some cases, be the same as the first of the input files, yet contain much more data.

Unlike some other programs in this series, only non-compressed files are valid inputs. This is considered a feature to keep from concatenating previously compressed archives.
