       tau2otf - convert TAU tracefiles to OTF tracefiles for Vampir/VNG


       tau2otf [-n streams] [-nomessage] [-v]


       This program is generated when TAU is configured with the -otf=<otf_dir> option. The
       tau2otf trace converter takes a TAU formatted tracefile (*.trc) and a TAU event
       description file (*.edf) and produces an output trace file in the Open Trace Format (OTF).
       The user may specify the number of output streams for OTF. The input files and output file
       must be specified in that order. TAU traces should be merged using tau_merge prior to


       -n streams Specifies the number of output streams (default is 1).  -nomessage Suppresses
       printing of message information in the trace.  -v Verbose mode sends trace event
       descriptions to the standard output as they are converted.


       The program must be run with the tau trace, tau event and otf output files specified in
       the command line in that order. Any additional arguments follow. The following will
       produced an OTF file, a pp.otf and other related event and definition files, from the TAU
       trace and event files merged.trc and tau.edf trace file:
