Read AmiraMesh data in binary or ascii format
Read the header of an AmiraMesh file
read.amiramesh( file, sections = NULL, header = FALSE, simplify = TRUE, endian = NULL, ReadByteAsRaw = FALSE, Verbose = FALSE ) read.amiramesh.header(file, Parse = TRUE, Verbose = FALSE)
Name of file (or connection) to read
character vector containing names of sections
Whether to include the full unprocessed text header as an attribute of the returned list.
If there is only one datablock in file do not return wrapped in a list (default TRUE).
Whether multibyte data types should be treated as big or little
endian. Default of NULL checks file or uses
Logical specifying whether to read 8 bit data as an R
raw vector rather than
integer vector (default: FALSE).
Print status messages
Logical indicating whether to parse header (default: TRUE)
list of named data chunks
reading byte data as raw arrays requires 1/4 memory but complicates arithmetic.
read.amiramesh.header will open a connection if file is a
character vector and close it when finished reading.
