data.multiplex inputs (either files or piped commands) and combined them into a single time interwoven multiplexed stream, written to standard output.

Command Line Usage

data.multiplex input1 [input2 ... inputN]


input1 ... inputN

List if inputs. Any one starting with a pipe “|” is treated as a command to be executed (the pipe character is removed). Specifying “-” reads from standard input.

Example Usage

Multiple files

data.multiplex data1 data2

File and standard input

data.get sgp S11a 2008:10 2008:11 | data.multiplex - data1

Data from multiple stations

data.multiplex '|data.get sgp S11a 2008:10 2008:11' '|data.get bnd S11a 2008:10 2008:11'

Note: multiple station data cannot be used with many processing programs, use with caution.
