isis_prt2hist [--yes_to_all] [--version] [--help] [--man] [<print.prt file to process>]


This program knows how to comb through ISIS's print.prt file and look for ISIS::histplane output. The idea is to put the output from different runs of histplane into their own files. It will automatically detect and suggest a file name, and it will comment out lines that are not data. This makes it easier to read into programs like gnuplot.

If an explicit <print.prt file to process> is not named, then this program will automatically look for a file called print.prt.


Don't prompt for the filename of the histogram, just let the program automatically create the files. They will be the same as the input cube files, but with the final .cub replaced with .hist.
