NAME

       ncgm2cgm - filter NCAR CGM to vanilla CGM cgm2ncgm - filter NCAR CGM from vanilla CGM

SYNOPSIS

       ncgm2cgm [ -s output block size ] [ -V ]

       cgm2ncgm [ -s input block size ] [ -V ]

DESCRIPTION

       ncgm2cgm  and  cgm2ncgm  are  filters  for converting back and forth between NCAR Computer
       Graphics Metafile (CGM) and vanilla CGM.   ncgm2cgm  strips  the  wrapper  from  NCAR  CGM
       records while cgm2ncgm restores it. I/O is done from standard in/out respectively.

OPTIONS

       -s size
              Set  block  size  in  bytes  for  reads/writes of vanilla CGM. The default blocking
              factor is 1024.

       -V     Print the version number and then exit.

BUGS

       Some vanilla metafile interpretors take advantage  of  shortcuts  provided  by  their  CGM
       generators.  In  effect,  they  are  not  true CGM interpretors. Although it will still be
       possible to convert these metafiles to  NCAR  format  that  may  be  interpreted  by  NCAR
       Graphics  translators. It may not be the case that the aforementioned interpreters will be
       able to translate true vanilla metafiles, such as produced by ncgm2cgm.
