This documentation describes the functionality of the codacmp tool which is part of CODA.
With codacmp one can compare two product files. The tool is primarily intended for verification purposes.
codacmp [-D definitionpath] [<options>] file1 file2 Compare contents of file1 and file2 Options: -d, --disable_conversions do not perform unit/value conversions -p, --path <path> path (in the form of a CODA node expression) to the location in the product where the comparison should begin. This path should be available in both products. If this parameter is not provided the full products are compared. -k, --key <path_to_array> <key_string_expr> for the given array in the product use the string expression as a unique key to line up the array elements in the two products. The array elements will then be compared as if it were record fields where the 'key' is used as the field name. This option can be provided multiple times (for different paths). -V, --verbose show more information while performing the comparison codacmp -h, --help Show help (this text) codacmp -v, --version Print the version number of CODA and exit CODA will look for .codadef files using a definition path, which is a ':' separated (';' on Windows) list of paths to .codadef files and/or to directories containing .codadef files. By default the definition path is set to a single directory relative to the tool location. A different definition path can be set via the CODA_DEFINITION environment variable or via the -D option. (the -D option overrides the environment variable setting).
