bufr_reencode.pl <file containing decoded BUFR message(s)> [--outfile <file to print encoded BUFR message(s) to>] [--width n] [--strict_checking n] [--tablepath <path to BUFR tables>] [--verbose n] [--help]
Encode BUFR messages from a file containing decoded BUFR messages from bufrread.pl (possibly edited). Prints to STDOUT unless option
--outfile is used.
Execute without arguments for Usage, with option --help for some additional info.
Bufr_reencode.pl will create BUFR message(s) printed to STDOUT from contents of input file, which should match exactly what you would get by running bufrread.pl on the final BUFR message(s).
bufr_reencode.pl bufr.decoded > reencoded.bufr
after first having done
bufrread.pl 'BUFR file' > bufr.decoded Edit file bufr.decoded as desired
Options (may be abbreviated, e.g.
--outfile <filename> Will print encoded BUFR messages to <filename> instead of STDOUT --width n The decoded message(s) was created by using bufrread.pl with option --width n --strict_checking n n=0 Disable strict checking of BUFR format n=1 Issue warning if (recoverable) error in BUFR format n=2 (default) Croak if (recoverable) error in BUFR format. Nothing more in this message will be encoded. --verbose n Set verbose level to n, 0<=n<=6 (default 0). Verbose output is sent to STDOUT, so ought to be combined with option --outfile --tablepath <path to BUFR tables> If used, will set path to BUFR tables. If not set, will fetch tables from the environment variable BUFR_TABLES, or if this is not set: will use DEFAULT_TABLE_PATH hard coded in source code. --help Display Usage and explain the options used. Almost the same as consulting perldoc bufr_reencode.pl
'Optional section present' in section 1 of BUFR message will always be set to 0, as reencode_message in Geo::BUFR does not provide encoding of section 2. A warning will be printed to STDERR if 'Optional section present' originally was 1.
