USAGE

.OPERATION: CP FROM ASCII

.EDITABLE IMAGE INPUT FILE: PIC001
[Enter name of text file to be copied.]

.ARE NX, NY AND NZ IN FIRST LINE OF FILE? N
[If answer is "Y", then the first line of the file must contain dimensions: NX, NY and NZ.

Otherwise, SPIDER will ask the following question:

.NX, NY, & NZ: 32, 32, 1
[Give image/volume dimensions: NX, NY and NZ.]

.FORMAT DESCRIPTION (OR <CR> FOR *): (6X,1X,1G12.5)
[Enter format for each line of the image data from the text file. Format must start and end with ()'s. The sample format used here will read image values from the first register in a document file, but you must remove any comments from the document file.]

.OUTPUT FILE: PIC002
[Enter name of SPIDER output file.]

NOTES

  1. Free-format input (*) can be used so that any normal number representation is acceptable for the image values, e.g.
    3 5.1 -6.889 -1.089E-01
    The image lines in the input file contain the image values separated by blanks or commas.
