SpacePy Scripts

Some scripts using SpacePy are included in the scripts directory of the source distribution. At the moment they are not installed by the installer.

Checks for various ISTP compliance issues in a file and prints any issues found. This script is supplemental to the checker included with the ISTP skeleton editor; it primarily checks for errors that the skeleton editor does not.

Badly noncompliant files generally result in the error “Test x did not complete”. This means the test crashed due to some failure in the assumptions about the CDF structure. Please run the individual test to get a traceback and open an issue.

This is just a thin wrapper to spacepy.pycdf.istp.FileChecks.all(); that documentation (plus other methods in the class) describes the actual checks.
