The WNDWPOINTS program reads an input SMOKE I/O API format file and an output "window" OUTGRID, extracts all the data that lies within the coverage of OUTGRID, and writes it to a new SMOKE I/O API format file OUTFILE, together with a "flags-file" PTFLAGS for use by program WNDWPTDATA. This file has one variable OUTFILE such that If there are no points in the requested output window, the program returns EXITSTATUS = 3 to the operating system, and does not create PTFLAGS and OUTFILE.

The WNDWPTDATA program reads an input window-flags file from WNDWPOINTS and uses it to window all the (source-subscripted) variables from an input SMOKE point-data file (such as PTMP or PLAY) to the coverage of the indicated OUTGRID, and writes the result to a new SMOKE point-data file.

If you want to run these programs in batch mode (from a script), the recommended way to develop the script is to run the program once interactively noting the pattern of responses to prompts which generate the particular analysis you want. The pattern of responses then becomes either a command-input file which you may redirect into the program in the script, or may become a "here-document" fed into the execution by the script.
