mbhsdump - lists the information contained in Hydrosweep DS data files.
mbhsdump [-Fformat -Iinfile -Okind -V -H]
mbhsdump lists the information contained in data records on
Hydrosweep DS data files, including survey, calibrate, water velocity
and comment records. The default input stream is stdin. Prior to version 5.4
this program was named hsdump.

Sets the format for the input and output swath sonar data using
MBIO integer format identifiers.
This program is specific to Hydrosweep DS data, and cannot be used
with data from any other swath sonar system or with data in a Hydrosweep
format that does not include water velocity records. Currently, the two formats
which can be used are the raw Hydrosweep DS format (MBIO id 21)
and the L-DEO in-house binary Hydrosweep format (MBIO id 24).
Default: format = 5.
This "help" flag causes the program to print out a description
of its operation and then exit immediately.
Data file from which the input data will be read. If
no input file is specified, the input will be read
from stdin. Default: infile = stdin.
Sets the kind of data record which will be listed, where the choices
for kind include:
1: Survey data record
2: Comment record
3: Calibrate data record
4: Mean velocity data record
5: Velocity profile data record
6: Standby data record
7: Navigation source data record
This option can be given multiple times to set more than one
kind of data record for listing.
Normally, mbhsdump lists only the contents of the data records
which are specified with the -O option. If the
-V flag is given, then mbhsdump works in a "verbose" mode and
outputs the program version being used, any comment records encountered
in the data stream, and all error status messages.
Suppose one wishes to list out the water velocity records
contained in the raw Hydrosweep (format 21) file hsraw.
The following will suffice:
mbhsdump -F21 -O4 -O5 -Ihsraw
mbsystem(1), mbinfo(1), mblist(1)
Other than the name change, this program hasn't been altered in this century.
It is probably stale.
