Name
       dtifddif - convert DTIF formatted files to DDIF formatted files

Syntax
       dtifddif	  [-m	message_log]   [-O  optionfile]	 [-o  outputfile]  [-p
       options_line]...	 [-d extension] [inputfile [outputfile [logfile]]]

Description
       The dtifddif command reads a DTIF (table) formatted file from inputfile
       and  writes a DDIF formatted file to outputfile.	 Since this conversion
       crosses from the DTIF grammar domain to DDIF,  the  converter  is  also
       called  a  domain  converter.   To convert from file.dtif to file.ddif,
       type:

       dtifddif file.dtif file.ddif.
       If you do not supply an input file, or if you supply a minus  sign  (-)
       as  an  argument,  dtifddif reads the DDIF file from the standard input
       file.  If you do not supply an output file, or if you  supply  a	 minus
       sign  (-) as an argument, dtifddif writes the DDIF file to the standard
       output file.

       If the DTIF input file is a newer version of the DTIF grammar than that
       understood  by  the converter, data represented by the new grammar ele‐
       ments is lost.

       A document syntax error in the DTIF input file  causes  a  fatal	 input
       processing  error. The conversion stops and no further input processing
       occurs.

       You can also invoke the dtifddif conversion with	 the  cdoc(1)  command
       when  you use that command and specify a source format (-s) in the DTIF
       domain or a destination format (-d) in the DDIF domain.

Options
       -m message_log
	    Enables enhanced messaging and logs all  messages  to  message_log
	    or,	 if  '-'  is specified, to standard error in place of the mes‐
	    sage_log.  If you do not specify this option, only serious	errors
	    are reported.

       -O optionfile
	    Specifies the name of the options file containing options for this
	    converter.

		 The options file has a default	 file  type  of	 .cda_options.
		 Each  line  of	 the options file specifies a format name that
		 can optionally be followed by _input or _output  to  restrict
		 the option to either an input or output converter. The second
		 word is a valid option preceded by one or more spaces,	 tabs,
		 or  a	slash (/) and can contain uppercase and lowercase let‐
		 ters, numbers, dollar signs, and underlines. The case of let‐
		 ters  is not significant. If an option requires a value, then
		 spaces, tabs, or an equal sign can separate the  option  from
		 the value.

		 You  can precede any line by spaces and tabs.	To terminate a
		 line, use any character other than those used to specify  the
		 format	 names	and  options. The syntax and interpretation of
		 the text that follows the format name	is  specified  by  the
		 supplier  of the front and back end converters for the speci‐
		 fied format.

		 To specify several options for the same input or output  for‐
		 mat,  specify	one option on a line. If an invalid option for
		 an input or output format or an invalid value for  an	option
		 is  specified,	 the option may be ignored or an error message
		 may be returned. Each input or output	format	that  supports
		 processing options specifies any restrictions or special for‐
		 mats required when specifying options.

		 By default, any messages that occur during processing of  the
		 options  file are written to standard error.  For those input
		 and output formats that support a LOG option, messages can be
		 directed to a log file or to a common message log.

       -o outputfile
		 Specifies  the	 name of the output file. Included in the com‐
		 mand syntax for compatibility with the cdoc command.

       -p options_line
		 Allows options to be specified on the command	line  and  has
		 the  same  effect as specifying an options file for this con‐
		 verter.  You can specify up to 100 options, each preceded  by
		 -p.

       -d extension
		 Allows the specification of a default file extension for com‐
		 patibility with other operating systems.
