Windows vs/ Unix NOTEΒΆ

Note

As of April 2013, this version of the documentation is no longer maintained; however, it is consistent with the last (now retired) version of CODAS processing that used Matlab. We no longer update or fix the Matlab processing code, but we will maintain the Matlab code that reads CODAS Matlab output. Although the notes refer to both Python and Matlab processing, none of the code here will be maintained. This (now retired) documentation and code will remain available for awhile longer.

Python processing code is actively maintained and developed, and CODAS Python processing is documented here.

Quick_adcp.py is designed to work with unix-variants or with Windows. People with a great variety of backgrounds read this documentation. Newer documentation is mostly written with a linux machine in mind, for example when describing directories or using commands, eg:

cd /home/data/adcp_processing

# comment: make cruise directory
mkdir vg1108
cd vg1108

# comment: make processing dirctory
adcptree.py os75nb --datatype lta
cd os75nb

# comment (must already have q_py.cnt file made)
quick_adcp.py --cntfile q_py.cnt

But the same commands could have been cast as if they were on a windows machine:

cd c:\data\adcp_processing

# comment: make cruise directory
mkdir vg1108
chdir vg1108

# comment: make processing dirctory
adcptree.py os75nb --datatype lta
chdir os75nb

# comment (must already have q_py.cnt file made)
quick_adcp.py --cntfile q_py.cnt

Here is a short table of equivalence:

UNIX shell Windows Command Prompt
cd chdir
ls dir
mkdir mkdir
cp copy
cd /home/data chdir c:\\data
cat cruise_info.txt type cruise_info.txt
