- description: sddsinterp does polynomial interpolation of one or more columns of data as a function of a common independent variable. Interpolation may be done at specified points, at a sequence of points, or at points given in another SDDS file.
- examples: Do second-order polynomial interpolation of Twiss parameters at 250 points to get
smoother-looking data:
sddsinterp APS.twi APS.interp -column=s,betax,betay -order=2 -sequence=250

- synopsis:
sddsinterp [-pipe[=input][,output]] [inputFile] [outputFile] [-columns=independentQuantity,name[,name...]]

{ -atValues=valuesList |

-fillIn |

-sequence=points[,start,end] |

-fileValues=valuesFile[,column=columnName][,parallelPages] }

[-order=number] [-printOut[=bare][,stdout]]

[-belowRange={value=value | skip | saturate | extrapolate | wrap}[,{abort | warn}]

[-aboveRange={value=value | skip | saturate | extrapolate | wrap}[,{abort | warn}]

- files: inputFile is an SDDS file containing columns of data to be interpolated. One column is selected as the independent variable. Any number of others may be specified as dependent variables. If inputFile contains multiple data pages, each is treated separately. outputFile contains the independent variable values at which interpolation was performed, in a column with the same name as the independent variable in inputFile. Similarly, the interpolated values are placed in outputFile under the same names as the independent columns from inputFile.
- switches:
- -pipe[=input][,output] — The standard SDDS Toolkit pipe option.
- -columns=independentQuantity,name[,name...] — Specifies the names of the independent and dependent variable columns.
- -atValues=valuesList — Specifies a comma-separated list of values at which interpolation is done.
- -sequence=points[,start,end] — Specifies a sequence of equispaced points at which interpolation is done. If start and end are given, they specify the range of these points. If they are not given, the range is the range of the independent data.
- -fillIn—Somewhat like -sequence=points, except the number of points is chosen so that the spacing of the interpolation points is equal to the minimum point spacing in the file. In other words, if you have a data file with non- equidistant points, this option interpolates to give you equidistant points with the same minimum spacing as the original data. This tends to fill in the space between widely-spaced points, hence the name.
- -fileValues=valuesFile[,column=columnName][,parallelPages] — Specifies a set of values at which interpolation is to be done. In this case, the values are extracted from a column (columnName) of an SDDS file (valuesFile). If parallelPages is given, then successive pages of inputFile are interpolated at points given by successive pages of valuesFile. Otherwise, each page of inputFile is interpolated at the values in all pages of valuesFile; this can take quite some time if both files have many pages with many rows.
- -order=number — The order of the polynomials to use for interpolation. The default is 1, indicating linear interpolation.
- -printOut[=bare][,stdout] — Specifies that interpolated values should be printed to stderr. By default, the printout contains text identifying the quantities; this may be suppressed by specifying bare. Output may be directed to the standard output by specifying stdout.
- -belowRange={value=value | skip | saturate | extrapolate | wrap}[,{ abort | warn}, -aboveRange={value=value | skip | saturate | extrapolate | wrap}[,{ abort | warn} — These options specify the behavior in the event that an interpolation point is, respectively, below or above the range of the independent data. If such an out-of-range point occurs, the default behavior is to assign the value at the nearest endpoint of the data; this is identical to specifying saturate. One may specify use of a specific value with value=value. skip specifies that offending points should be discarded. extrapolate specifies extrapolation beyond the limits of the data. wrap specifies that the data should be treated as periodic. abort specifies that the program should terminate. warn requests warnings for out-of-bounds points.
