Convert output to text

Post by arl.noaa »

I am running HYSPLIT 4 on my desktop and the output file type says "file". How do I get the output files to be a text file? Thank you.

The output of the trajectory program (tdump) is a text file (you may need to rename it tdump.txt or else open it with Notepad or Wordpad). The output of the dispersion program (cdump) is a binary file. There is a program that comes with the PC version that can convert the binary data to a text file. You can find it (con2asc.exe) in the exec directory of HYSPLIT or else from the PC GUI Concentration/Utilities/Convert to ASCII.
