From file To fixed.field.file.descriptor

Category-Name: descriptor

What: This 'descriptor' converter will convert a resource of category file to a resource of category fixed.field.file.descriptor. This converter verifies that the resource is a well formed descriptor (structure + content).
CONVERT {resourceToConvert<Res:file>} TO fixed.field.file.descriptor (descriptor) AS {converted<Res:fixed.field.file.descriptor>}
Input:
  • resourceToConvert<Res:file>: The name of the resource to convert (Resource of category file). This ressource should reference a fixed field file descriptor.
Output:
  • converted<Res:fixed.field.file.descriptor>: The name of the converted resource (Resource of category fixed.field.file.descriptor)

Example:

LOAD path/to/fixed_field_file_descriptor.txt AS fff_descriptor.file
CONVERT fff_descriptor.file TO fixed.field.file.descriptor (descriptor) AS fff_descriptor.fffd


From file to fixed.field.file

Category-Name: structured

What:
This 'structured' converter will convert a resource of category file to a resource of category fixed.field.file by using fixed.field.file.descriptor.
CONVERT {fffToConvert<Res:file>} TO fixed.field.file (structured) USING {fffDescriptor<Res:fixed.field.file.descriptor>} AS {converted<Res:fixed.field.file>}
 Input:
  • fffToConvert<Res:file>: The name (in the context) of the resource to convert (Resource of category file). This ressource should reference a fixed field file (e.g. by using a LOAD instruction on the fixed field file path).
  • fffDescriptor<Res:fixed.field.file.descriptor>: The name (in the context) of the descriptor resource. (Resource of category fixed.field.file.descriptor)
Output:
  • converted<Res:fixed.field.file>: The name of the converted resource. (Resource of category fixed.field.file)

Example:

LOAD path/to/fixed_field_file_descriptor.txt AS fff_descriptor.file
CONVERT fff_descriptor.file TO fixed.field.file.descriptor (descriptor) AS fff_descriptor.fffd
LOAD path/to/fixed_field_file.txt AS fixed_field_file.file
CONVERT fixed_field_file.file TO fixed.field.file (structured) USING fff_descriptor.fffd AS fixed_field_file.fff


From file to fixed.field.file.queries

Category-Name: query

What:
This 'query' converter will convert a resource of category file to a resource of category fixed.field.file.queries.
CONVERT {queriesToConvert<Res:file>} TO fixed.field.file.queries (query) AS {converted<Res:fixed.field.file.queries>}
Input:
  • queriesToConvert<Res:file>: The name (in the context) of the resource to convert (Resource of category file). This ressource should reference a fixed field file queries (e.g. by using a LOAD instruction on the fixed field file queries path).
Output:
  • converted<Res:fixed.field.file.queries>: The name of the converted resource (Resource of category fixed.field.file.queries)

Example:

LOAD path/to/fixed_field_file_queries.txt AS fff_queries.file
CONVERT fff_queries.file TO fixed.field.file.queries (query) AS fff_query.fffq
