TSTool / Command / WriteStateCU


The WriteStateCU command writes time series to the specified StateCU frost dates format file. Currently only the frost dates file can be written with this command. See the WriteStateMod command to write StateMod format files (e.g., for the precipitation, temperature, and diversion time series files used with the StateCU model). See the StateCU Input Type Appendix for more information about the file format. All time series matching the data types FrostDateL28S, FrostDateL32S, FrostDateF32F, and FrostDateF28F will be written (all other time series will be ignored). Other StateCU files may be supported in the future. See also the StateDMI software, which processes other StateCU files.
