Documentation for sfrmtools


sfrmtools reads one or more files in Siemens Frame Format (sfrm) and converts them into CBF-files. It also transforms the header information from the sfrm-file into XDS keywords, including a transformation of the two coordinate systems.

Caveat: I have not tested sfrmtools with unwarped images, as I don't have access to a specific data set. You are welcome to share a copy in case the converted images cause problems.

!        sfrmtools -u [-x XDS.INP] [-r prefix | -o outdir] file1.sfrm file2.sfrm ...
!        updates the header of all files according to XDS.INP
!        XDS.INP provided with '-x XDS.INP' or in current directory.
!        Files will be written to outdir\prefix+file1.sfrm.
!        To prevent file corruption, outdir or prefix are required.
