ncgm2cgm and cgm2ncgm are filters for converting back and forth between NCAR Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) and vanilla CGM. ncgm2cgm strips the wrapper from NCAR CGM records while cgm2ncgm restores it. I/O is done from standard in/out respectively.


-s size
Set block size in bytes for reads/writes of vanilla CGM. The default blocking factor is 1024.
Print the version number and then exit.


Some vanilla metafile interpretors take advantage of shortcuts provided by their CGM generators. In effect, they are not true CGM interpretors. Although it will still be possible to convert these metafiles to NCAR format that may be interpreted by NCAR Graphics translators. It may not be the case that the aforementioned interpreters will be able to translate true vanilla metafiles, such as produced by ncgm2cgm.
