How to Read Compressed Files and Archives?

VMoveCAE users can load modules by selecting archive or compressed files in GUI and during the batch execution. The following archives and compressed file formats are supported.

  • ZIP (*.zip) archive files

  • Tar (*.tar) archive files

  • GZip (*.gz) compressed files

  • BZip2 (*.bz2) compressed files

VMoveCAE extracts the archives and decompresses the compressed files into a temporary folder. It then tries to locate files of supported formats to load and translate the data. If VMoveCAE fails to locate any files of supported format, it will show an error to the user. If the folder contains more than one file of supported formats, it may load any one file and display it to the user. These uncompressed files are deleted automatically during VMoveCAE’s execution.

FEMZIP compressed d3plot files

VMoveCAE can also run FEMUNZIP executable, extract the uncompressed files and load them for translation. The procedure to enable this is provided below.

  • Users need to specify the FEMUNZIP executable path by setting the VMOVECAE_FEMUNZIP_DYNA_PATH environment variable. For example, on a desktop running a Microsoft Windows operating system, user can create and set the environment variable in a command terminal using the following command:

    set VMOVECAE_FEMUNZIP_DYNA_PATH=F:Softwarefemzipfemunzip_dyna.exe

  • Users also need to create and set the environment variable VMOVECAE_USE_FEMUNZIP to 1 to enable the FEMUNZIP execution.

  • VMoveCAE recognizes files using the extension “.fz” or starting with “Zd3plot” as FEMZIP compressed d3plot files.
