TRiP98 FAQ: How to merge raster scanner files

Equivalent rst-files, that is, with equal beam direction, and equal scanner stepsize can be merged in order to reduce the number of fields.
First, in the UNIX shell
cat 1.rst 2.rst >cat.rst
Remove the second fileheader and correct the #submachines to the sum of the single values. Then, in TRiP98:
sis <sistable> /read
rst cat.rst /read
rst merge.rst /write reverseorder
will create a new valid rst-file. Note that the SIS-table must exist before writing the rst-files.
