As of April 2013, this version of the documentation is no longer maintained; however, it is consistent with the last (now retired) version of CODAS processing that used Matlab.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 /home/data||chdir c:\\data|
|cat cruise_info.txt||type cruise_info.txt|
