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


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

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


       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.


       -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.


       ISO/DIS 8632 CGM Functional Specification (Nov. 1985)


       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.
