tacren - tpcclib 0.7.8 © 2022 by Turku PET Centre

Rename the specified TAC(s) inside a TAC file.
 
Usage: tacren [options] file tac_id newname
 
Enter the number or (partial) name of the TAC to be renamed.
Set tac_id to 0, if all TAC names are to be changed.
 
For newname, use '_' to separate for example hemisphere or other position
from the target name. Character '#' is replaced by sequential number.
Character '@' specifies that previous partial name is to be kept.
 
Note that not all TAC file formats can store TAC names.
At least PMOD and DFT formats support TAC names.
 
Options:
 -dry
     Nothing is actually renamed, application only lists which TAC(s) would
     be renamed and how.
 -add=<field_nr>
     New field name is added to given position; enter large number to add
     it to the end.
