cif2cbf - convert a CIF to a CBF file


cif2cbf [options]


cif2cbf is a program that accepts either a CIF or a CBF as input and outputs a CBF file.


-i input_cif
(default: stdin) the input file in CIF or CBF format. If input_cif is not
specified or is given as "-", it is copied from stdin to a temporary file.

-o output_cbf
(default: stdout) the output cif (if base64 or quoted-printable encoding is used)
or cbf (if no encoding is used). if no output_cif is specified or is given as "-",
the output is written to stdout if the output_cbf is /dev/null, no output is

The remaining options specify the characteristics of the output cbf. The characteristics
of the input cif are derived from context.

-c compression_scheme
(packed, canonical, byte_offset, v2packed, flatpacked or none, default packed)

-m [no]headers
(default headers for cifs, noheaders for cbfs) selects MIME (N. Freed, N.
Borenstein, RFC 2045, November 1996) headers within binary data value text fields.

-d [no]digest
(default md5 digest [R. Rivest, RFC 1321, April 1992 using"RSA Data Security, Inc.
MD5 Message-Digest Algorithm"] when MIME headers are selected)

-e encoding
(base64, quoted-printable or none, default base64) specifies one of the standard
MIME encodings for an ascii cif or "none" for a binary cbf

-b byte_order
(forward or backwards, default forward (1234) on little-endian machines, backwards
(4321) on big-endian machines

-p K_of_padding
(0, 1, 2, 4) for no padding after binary data 1023, 2047 or 4095 bytes of padding
after binary data

-v dictionary
specifies a dictionary to be used to validate the input cif and to apply aliases to
the output cif. This option may be specified multiple times, with dictionaries
layered in the order given.

-w process wide (2048 character) lines
