This project is being developped for the OSQAR experiment. spe-tools is a command-line program that converts spectrum files (*.spe) produced by CCD cameras by Princeton Instruments into one of the following formats:
spe-tools is written in C++ language using the Qt framework. It should work on all platforms supported by Qt, including Windows and Linux.
spe-tools 0.6 (current version) (md5sum: 64a0174f18d1af46908530019a048ffd)
spe-tools 0.5 (md5sum: 1f8ad47a59247206188a1a16d0b53378)
spe-tools 0.4 (md5sum: ae662b91a3382f16dcb3e458a912ba45)
spe-tools 0.3 (md5sum: c69eeed43a4414ca798e7c75d19e6497)
spe-tools 0.2 (md5sum: bbbec01148e4b3d23f16baaf02717ea3)
spe-tools 0.1 (md5sum: 1a1f7db53081588b4568056e221c3477)
on Windows: spe-tools.exe input.spe format [newline]
on Linux: ./spe-tools input.spe format [newline]
Format is one of the following: asc, csv, pgm, txt Newline is either empty or one of the following: unix, dos, mac This parameter specifies the format of new line sequence (Unix LF, DOS CR+LF, Mac CR), see Wikipedia article for more details.
You can also run spe-tools in a batch mode - this mode will convert all spectrum files in given directory and in its subdirectories. For examples, the command
spe-tools.exe C:\Data\ txt
will convert all spe files under the C:\Data into plain text files.
This quick howto assumes you are using some modern distribution of GNU/Linux. You will need Qt4 developement package (and for version 0.5 also ROOT).
plot 'file.txt' with lines set grid set xlabel 'Pixel No.' set ylabel 'Intensity' set label 'Spectrum' replot
Since version 0.6, the program supports all data formats of SPE file. However, data format 2 (signed 16-bit integer) has not been tested.
