NAME
       raconvert  - convert comma-separated ASCII argus(8) data, to binary ar-
       gus(8) data.

SYNOPSIS
       raconvert -r input -w output

DESCRIPTION
       Raconvert reads comman separated	ASCII argus data from a	file or	stdin,
       and  converts  the ASCII	representation to binary format.  In order for
       raconver	to process the delimited data correctly, the  file  should  be
       created	by ra.1	like programs, using the "-c <char>" option to specify
       a field separator.  Column delimiters can be any	non-ambiguous  charac-
       ter, and	are automatically discovered from the files title string.

       Because	raconvert.1 expects the	first valid string in the file to be a
       ra.1 column title line, the ra.1	program	must use the equivalent	of the
       "-L 0" option.

       The  file can present its column	oriented data in any order, and	racon-
       vert will accomodate.  Duplicate	columns	on the same line are  allowed,
       but  the	 final	value  in  the resulting argus record with be the last
       value encountered.

       raconvert.1 can read gzip and bzip2 compressed files, based on the file
       extension.

USES
       Raconvert  is  predominately used for reading ASCII represented archive
       data.  Argus data is routinely converted	to ASCII  for  inspection  and
       archiving,  due to the good compressibility offered by gzip and others.
       Argus data is also converted from binary	to ASCII and back  to  binary,
       as a routine process to enforce content policies.  The conversion, with
       ASCII inspection	ensures	that specific data of interest isn't leaked.

INVOCATION
       ra -L0 c	, -r argusfile > argus.ascii.csv
       raconvert -r argus.ascii.csv -w argusfile
