Listed below are several files related to the PDS-to-CDF conversion program:
a .pdf version of the man page for the pds-to-cdf
a pdf version of a man page describing the special requirements that the CDAWeb site imposes on CDF files.
a brief description of the steps involved in building the software from the source code distribution kit.
a brief description of the requirements and processing flow used in the conversion of a PDS data set into a CDAWeb-compliant CDF file.
the source code distribution kit for the pds-to-cdf conversion program, including the man pages and other documentation.
The translator is designed to handle generic CDFs with scalar values, and it creates a PDS detached label and an ASCII table for each CDF file. CDF metadata (global and variable attributes) are captured in PDS labels and CDF data are captured in external PDS ASCII text files.
Note: The converter cureently is not capable of handling vectors and 3-D arrays.
There are five files that are included as part of the CDF-to-PDS Translator distribution package. The CDF_to_PDS_Guide.doc file contains information on how to compile and run the translator program (written in C)
