NAME

vdltodmx - dmx configuration file parser and printer

SYNOPSIS

vdltodmx infile outfile

DESCRIPTION

vdltodmx reads the input file, which should be in VDL configuration file format. After a successful parse, a file in Xdmx configuration file format is written to the output file.

The VDL file format is used with xmovie, which is available from http://www.llnl.gov/icc/lc/img/xmovie/xmovie.html

EXAMPLE

Given the following VDL-format file:
0
2
#
#
2560 2048 Left two-thirds [restrict=*:2]
2
:2.1 1280 2048   0    0 0 0
:2.2 1280 2048   1280 0 0 0
4
1280 1024 0      0
1280 1024 0      1024
1280 1024 1280   0
1280 1024 1280   1024
#
2560 2048 Right two-thirds [restrict=*:2]
2
:2.2 1280 2048   0   0 0 0
:2.3 1280 2048   1280 0 0 0
4
1280 1024 1280    0
1280 1024 1280    1024
1280 1024 2560 0
1280 1024 2560 1024
the following DMX-format file will be produced:
#
#
virtual "Left two-thirds" 2560x2048 {
    display :2.1 1280x2048;
    display :2.2 1280x2048 @1280x0;
}
#
virtual "Right two-thirds" 2560x2048 {
    display :2.2 1280x2048;
    display :2.3 1280x2048 @1280x0;
}

BUGS

If the VDL file is not in the expected format, the program will probably dump core.
