Command Line Batch Interface

The command line is:

dfconv profile-fname [input-fname] [output-fname] [-d]
where the parameters are:
The name of the profile file that contains the details of the task you need to perform.
Note: This file must have a .PRO extension. If you specify a file with any other extension, DFCONV attempts to locate a profile file using the specified base-name and the .PRO extension.
The name of the input file (optional).
The name of the output file (optional).
Stops the display of the data file convert console messages (optional).

The input and output file-names are optional as they can be extracted from the profile file. If you specify file-names on the command line as well as in the profile file, those on the command line take precedence.

After conversion, the operating system error level (ERRORLEVEL) is set to non-zero if an error occurred during conversion. If you are running the conversion from a batch file, you can interrogate this to determine what action to take after the conversion.
