File Converter Tool


This tool converts file formats with the Q data and intensity data in separate files, into a single CanSAS XML file.

The input files can be:

  • Single column ASCII data, with lines that end with a digit, comma or semi-colon.
  • BSL/OTOKO formatted data files.

Using the Tool

  1. Select the files containing your Q-Axis and Intensity-Axis data
  2. Chose whether the files are in ASCII or BSL format
  3. Chose where you would like to save the converted XML file
  4. Optionally, input some metadata such as sample size, detector name, etc
  5. Click Convert to save the converted file to disk

Note: If a BSL/OTOKO file with multiple frames is selected for the intensity-axis file, a dialog will appear asking which frames you would like converted. You may enter a start frame, end frame & increment, and all frames in that subset will be converted. For example: entering 0, 50 and 10 for the first frame, last frame, and increment respectively will convert frames 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 & 50. To convert a single frame, enter the same value for first frame & last frame, and 1 as the increment.

Note: See TracBrowser for help on using the repository browser.
