XYCPT(1) User commands XYCPT(1)

xycpt - generate GMT colour palette table (cpt) files from column data.

xycpt [-b rgb] [-d] [-f rgb] [-h] [-n  rgb] [-o file] [-r registration] [-u] [-v] [-V] [ file]

The xycpt program generates discrete or continuous cpt files from simple input describing sample values of the colour (or greyscale) range. The input consists of 1–4 columns. For 2 and 4 columns, the first column is interpreted as a (double) z value, for 1 and 3 the z value is taken implicitly. For 1 and 2 columns the final column will be taken as a greyscale value. For 3 and 4, the last 3 columns are taken as RGB values.
The program will read from stdin if a file is not specified as the final argument, and write to stdout if the -o option is not specified.

In the following, all rgb specifications should be of the form red/ green/blue where the colour components are integers in the range 0 to 255.
-b, --background rgb
Set the background colour of the output.
--backtrace-file path
Specify a file to which to write a formatted backtrace. The file will only be created if there is a backtrace created, typically when an error occurs.
--backtrace-format format
Specify the format of the backtrace written to the files specified by --backtrace-file, one of plain, xml or json.
-d, --discrete
Output a discrete cpt file, the default is continuous.
-f, --foreground rgb
Set the foreground colour of the output.
-h, --help
Brief help.
-n, --nan rgb
Set the NaN (no data) colour of the output.
-o, --output file
Write the output to file, rather than stdout.
-r, --registration string
For discrete (using the -d option) conversion, specifies upper, middle or lower registration of the data value. For the upper and lower types the final (respectively the first) colour is omitted from the output; only the z value is used. For middle registration all the colours appear in the output.
-u, --unit
Colour values are specified as floating point numbers in the range 0–1 rather than as integers in the range 0–255.
-v, --verbose
Verbose operation.
-V, --version
Version information.
