       gpiv_series  -  Script  for  (parallel) processing a series of numbered


       gpiv_series [-a | --arg_n] [-b | --basename FILE] [-e | --ext ext]  [-f
       |  --first  N]  [-l  |  --last N] [-i | --incr N] [-x|| --prefix] [-h |
       --help] [-n | --none] [-p | --print] [--pad] "process -key1 ..."


       gpiv_series processes a series of numbered files. If no parameters  are
       defined  at the command line, standard parameters will be used that are
       defined in the script.  Principally,  any  program  or  script  may  be
       invoked by gpiv_series. "Process" is a string which represents the name
       of the program  to  be  executed,  including  eventually  command  line
       options and arguments. The file to be processed, as constructed from -b
       c.s., will be appended to the "process" string. If the program  has  to
       be feeded with -f "filename", write -f at the end of the string.

       When  using  the  parallelised  version,  mpipython  is invoked and the
       script may be launched with mpirun. The script  needs  that  all  input
       files  are  accessible  on  each  node  by copying all data or by (NFS)
       mounting the File System containing the input data on each node.

       This program does not use the parameter resources from libgpiv.


       -a | --arg_n
              If the process needs the current number  in  its  argument  list
              instead  of prepending/appending it to the FILE, the number will
              be put before (-f) filename in the "process" string.

       -b | --basename FILE
              The FILE has to be given without its extension. FILE  represents
              the  file  name  without  its  number.  It  is supposed that the
              leading or ending number in the filename  is  the  counter  that
              will be applied by gpiv_series when processing.

       -e | --ext EXT
              add  an  extension  EXT  after the filename (without the leading
              ".") in "process".

       -f | --first N
              Defines the counter N  of  the  number  at  which  the  analyses
              starts.  Default: 0.

       -l | --last N
              The last number N that will be processed. Default: 0.

       -i | --incr N
              Increment  number with N. Default: 1. This might be usefull, for
              example, if subsequent numbered images are combined  for  cross-
              correlation with the gpiv_img2gpiv tool.

       -x | --prefix
              Use prefix numbering to file basename.

       -h | --help
              On-line help.

       -n | --none
              Suppresses real execution, only prints the process to stdout.

       -p | --print
              Prints the process to be performed on each file to stdout.

       --pad  N
              Padding a number with N zero’s when combining with the filename.
