The Python program

Here is the listing. The explanation will follow some months or weeks from now below, after the === bar.

#! /usr/bin/python

import sys, bsddb, string, stationstring

BAD = None
IN_FILE_NAME = "Ts.discont.RS.alter.IN"

def main():
    in_name = sys.argv[1]
    IN_BDB_NAME = in_name + ".bdb"
    OUT_BDB_NAME = in_name + ".alter.bdb"
    in_bdb = bsddb.hashopen(IN_BDB_NAME, "r")
    print "reading", IN_BDB_NAME
    out_bdb = bsddb.hashopen(OUT_BDB_NAME, "c" or "n")
    print "writing", OUT_BDB_NAME

    alter_dict = get_alter_dict()

    global BAD
    BAD = string.atoi(in_bdb["IBAD"]) / 10.0
    BAD = 0.1 * int(BAD * 10.0)
    out_bdb["IBAD"] = in_bdb["IBAD"]

    fill_new_bdb(in_bdb, out_bdb, alter_dict)

                                                       abs(datum - BAD))
                data[m][index] = datum + a_num
        s = stationstring.serialize(dict, data)
        out_bdb[id] = s

        if ids_seen.has_key(id):
        out_bdb[id] = in_bdb[id]

The analysis of this program will have to wait a fair while as I’m still finishing another step. It looks like it’s a well done library of utilities so I’ll likely leave it to the end.
