Help file for XLATE %1
XLATE is a program used to analyze and pre-process the data from
the TRACE format files produced by TRACK. It has a very simple
dialogue, and produces up to two output files: an ASCII file with
summaries of the TRACK data, and a PLOT file, for use with the XLPLOT
When running XLATE, it is necessary the the file NAMES.TRK be
accessible to the directory from which XLATE is being run. All file
specification inputting is done via FORTRAN DIALOG mode, meaning that
the input is terminated with an altmode or escape character.
1.1 INPUT FILENAME
The default here is TRACK.TRC; this is the file produced by TRACK
when the /FORMAT:TRACE switch was given in SYSTEM mode.
1.2 OUTPUT FILENAME
This is the file that gets the ASCII formatted information on the
statistics gathered from TRACK. Answering NUL: will get rid of this
1.3 PLOTTING FILENAME
This is the file which XLPLOT will read for input, to produce
printer and terminal plots of the data. It is an ASCII file as well,
and can therefore be read to look at the data (although the format is
Up to 40 characters of identifying information can be typed here.
This will appear on both of the output files. In addition, XLPLOT will
use this information to label the plots (along with any comments
supplied to XLPLOT directly.
