The following sections shortly describe
how to run DATAVER from the command-line on any of the supported platforms, the required input and the produced output files.
DATAVER may be used to quickly average two or more input data files. This is particularly useful to average frames of multiple exposures, e.g. multiple sample or buffer measurements. In the case of only one input file, the output contains the data of the input.
$ dataver [OPTIONS] <FILE> [FILE(S)]
OPTIONS known by DATAVER are described in next section, the required FILE arguments in the section on input files.
DATAVER requires the following command line arguments:
FILE A data file in any of the supported formats.
FILE(S) One or more additional data files in any of the supported formats.
Absolute as well as relative paths to data files are accepted. Up to one of the input files may also be given as '-', in this case input is read from stdin instead of a file.
DATAVER recognizes following command-line options:
Short option Long option Description
--output=<FILE> Specify a
FILE where to write the averaged data to, the FILE may contain relative or absolute path components. By default the result is written to stdout.
--version Print version information and exit.
--help Print a summary of arguments and options and exit.
Input files for DATAVER may be in any of the supported data formats as long as scattering vector, experimental intensity and errors are available.
The produced output file contains the average of all input data sets.
