Can l2a.exe merge ASCII files in Binout?
I need to group back all my single ASCII files (e.g., abstat, nodout, glstat, matsum, ...) in a single binout000* file. I know from here ( https://ftp.lstc.com/anonymous/outgoing/support/FAQ/ASCII_output_for_MPP_via_binout ) that it is possible to do the opposite, i.e., extrapolating the ASCII files from the binout, but I can't find anything about the reverse.
I'm facing this issue because I, unfortunately, deleted the binout files after the simulations, keeping only the ASCII ones 😣. I could re-run the simulations, but it takes time.
Can l2a.exe do what I want, or does anybody have other walkarounds for this problem?
Hmm this is a good question. I'm not sure if a third-party software could do this, but I would have to think you can do this in LS-Prepost. I'm looking to see if I can figure it out.
It doesn't appear like you can do this in Prepost. How long does it take to run your simulation? You might want to just go for that if you really want your data in binary. Just make sure you keep "binary=2" for your *database cards in the future.
