Post processing programs

Dear all
Can anyone guide me where I can get details about all post-processing programs available in the hysplit4/exec directory?

We have plans to better document the programs in the exec directory, but for now if you manually run each program in the Windows Command Prompt, by just entering the name of the program, most programs give information on the model inputs. For example:

C:\hysplit4\exec> con2asc
Converts binary concentration file to simple lat/lon based ascii file, one
record per grid point, for any grid point with any level or pollutant not
zero. One output file per sampling time period.

USAGE: con2asc -[options (default)]
-c[Convert all records to one diagnostic file]
-d[Delimit output by comma flag]
-f[File flag for a file for each pollutant-level]
-i[Input file name (cdump)]
-m[Minimum output format flag]
-o[Output file name base (cdump)]
-s[Single output file flag]
-t[Time expanded (minutes) file name flag]
-u[Units conversion multiplier concentration (1.0)]
-U[Units conversion multiplier deposition (1.0)]
-v[Vary output by +lon+lat (default +lat+lon)]
-x[Extended precision flag]
-z[Zero points output flag]

NOTE: leave no space between option and value
