SYNOPSIS

ivcat [-bfht] [-o file] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION

ivcat reads each file in sequence and then writes each out. If no input file is given, or a filename of "-" is specified, ivcat reads from the standard input file. The input files must be valid Open Inventor 3D Interchange Format files (1.0 or 2.0).

The following command line options are allowed:
-b Write out the files in binary Inventor format. The default is to write out the files in Inventor’s ASCII format.
-f Remove all SoFile nodes. This has the effect of condensing hierarchical files into a single file.
-h Print usage message.
-o file
  Send the output to the given file, instead of to the standard output.
-t Expand SoTexture2 nodes to explictly include the texture data rather than a file name.

EXAMPLES

To convert from binary to ASCII Inventor
ivcat < binaryfile.iv > asciifile.iv
To convert from ASCII to binary Inventor:
ivcat -b < asciifile.iv > binaryfile.iv

SOURCE CODE

Note that the source code to ivcat comes with the Open Inventor 3d Toolkit.

FILES
