[teqc] -tbin option coming

All,

Do you remember last year's discussion about a time binning option for automatic
RINEX file creation?  (latter part of http://ls.unavco.org/pipermail/teqc/2007/000549.html
with -tbin and -ast options)  Well, I think it will be coming.

In general, teqc should have to be able to do time binning for:

n raw or BINEX files -> m RINEX filesets
n RINEX files of same type -> m RINEX files of same type as input
n raw or BINEX files -> m BINEX files
n RINEX filesets -> m BINEX files

I'm initially focusing on the first case because it's the most complex.
Once that's done, it's on to the second case.

For cases 1 and 2, specifying _which_ RINEX file types you want output in
a time-binned sense will be accomplished with a '+' for the filename
used with the '+obs', '+nav', and/or '+met' options.

Example: input is one Topcon TPS file, cp_1p.tps:

[2299] teqc -notice +mds cp_1p.tps
2003-01-27 10:38:30  2003-01-27 15:12:00    369743  cp_1p.tps

To create hourly time-binned RINEX obs and nav files (both GPS and GLONASS):

[2302] teqc -notice +nav +,+ +obs + -tbin 1h temp cp_1p.jps
creating temp027m.03n ...
creating temp027k.03o ...
creating temp027k.03g ...
creating temp027l.03o ...
creating temp027l.03g ...
creating temp027o.03n ...
creating temp027m.03o ...
creating temp027m.03g ...
creating temp027n.03o ...
creating temp027n.03g ...
creating temp027q.03n ...
creating temp027o.03o ...
creating temp027o.03g ...
creating temp027p.03o ...
creating temp027p.03g ...

[2303] ll temp*
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg    776 Jul  3 19:41 temp027k.03g
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg  58377 Jul  3 19:41 temp027k.03o

-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg   2235 Jul  3 19:41 temp027n.03g
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg 150869 Jul  3 19:41 temp027n.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg   1915 Jul  3 19:41 temp027o.03g
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg   9948 Jul  3 19:41 temp027o.03n
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg 165236 Jul  3 19:41 temp027o.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg    955 Jul  3 19:41 temp027p.03g
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg  39313 Jul  3 19:41 temp027p.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg   7540 Jul  3 19:41 temp027q.03n

If, on the other hand, you didn't want the nav messages time binned and
you wanted them all gobbed into a single RINEX nav file for GPS and
a single RINEX nav file for GLONASS:

[2304] rm temp*
[2305] teqc -notice +nav temp0270.03n,temp0270.03g +obs + -tbin 1h temp cp_1p.jps
creating temp027k.03o ...
creating temp027l.03o ...
creating temp027m.03o ...
creating temp027n.03o ...
creating temp027o.03o ...
creating temp027p.03o ...

[2306] ll temp*
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg  10056 Jul  3 19:43 temp0270.03g
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg  20169 Jul  3 19:43 temp0270.03n
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg  58377 Jul  3 19:43 temp027k.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg 165803 Jul  3 19:43 temp027l.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg 168898 Jul  3 19:43 temp027m.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg 150869 Jul  3 19:43 temp027n.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg 165236 Jul  3 19:43 temp027o.03o
-rw-r--r-- 1 lou dmg  39313 Jul  3 19:43 temp027p.03o

You probably get the general idea.  These examples also use the default time
alignment, which starts at GPS time 00:00:00 in the first day of the input data.

The next part to get working is the different cases of the user-specified
time alignment.

Just thought you'd like to see that progress is being made.  I'll probably have
some questions for potential users of these options as this nears completion,
so stay alert!

cheers,
