Extraction of NODOUT data (binout or ASCII format) out of d3plot file for a given node set.

plot2nodout reads nodal time history data from a LS-DYNA plotfile and writes it into a nodout-format file

usage: plot2nodout [options]


-l nodelist-file

file with list of nodes for the nodout file
(default: nodelist)
format: one node per line; "*" is comment

or *NODE keyword format (incl *NODE)

-g plotfile LS-DYNA binary plot data file
(default: d3plot)
-o nodout-result name for resulting nodout file
(default: nodout.plot)

output format for nodout is LSDA (binout)

(default: ASCII format)

-norot no rotational data is written to the nodout
(default: rotational data written as zero)
-s ### select state ### only (default: all states)
-f ### output frequence for nodout (default: each state, "1")
-p ### print intervall for stdout (default: each state, "1")
-coor output coordinates in keyword format
(no nodout data written)
-v gives version number
-h give this help on screen
