16.3 Exporting XAS files as ASCII files

XAS tabular files (or part of them) may be easily converted to ASCII files, which can be used as an interface to any program, in particular to plotting programs like QDP or Supermongo or even IDL itself.
Command tlist is normally used to produce on the terminal an ASCII dump of (part of) a XAS tabular file (any data file not in image form). This output can be captured into an ASCII file using standard operating system input/output redirection facilities, e.g. in Unix
tlist [file records > asciifile
