bon_csv2html - Man Page


bon_csv2html program to convert CSV format Bonnie++ data to a HTML form using tables suitable for display on a web page. NB Lynx can't display this properly, and due to the size it probably requires 1024x768 monitor to display properly.

bon_csv2txt program to convert CSV format Bonnie++ data to plain-text format suitable for pasting into an email or reading on a Braille display.


They take CSV format (comma-delimited spreadsheet files AKA Comma Seperated Values in MS land) data on standard input and produce HTML or plain text on standard output respectively.
