FTable Converter

The FTable Converter tool converts ftable statements into ftgen statements. When converted, the prior ftable statement numbers are ignored and ftgen statements are created using requested ftable number of 0. The generated ftgen statements generate with the values of the ftables set to "gi_" with the expectation that the user will fill out the rest of the name to be meaningful to them.

Conversion of ftable statements to ftgen statements is useful in creating ftables that will be referenced by global variables instead of hard-coded numbers.

To use, simply put your ftable statement text in the top text area and press the "Convert to FTGEN" button to convert. For example, if you use the following ftable statement text:

f1 0 128 7 0 128 0		; initpos
f2 0 128 -7 1 128 1		; masses
f4 0 128 -7 0 128 2		; centering force
f5 0 128 -7 1 128 1		; damping
f6 0 128 -7 -.0 128 0	; init velocity
f7 0 128 -7 0 128 128	; trajectory

you will get the following output:

gi_ ftgen 0, 0, 128, 7, 0, 128, 0   ; initpos
gi_ ftgen 0, 0, 128, -7, 1, 128, 1    ; masses
gi_ ftgen 0, 0, 128, -7, 0, 128, 2    ; centering force
gi_ ftgen 0, 0, 128, -7, 1, 128, 1    ; damping
gi_ ftgen 0, 0, 128, -7, -.0, 128, 0  ; init velocity
gi_ ftgen 0, 0, 128, -7, 0, 128, 128  ; trajectory
