    Some suggestion about .1file type, .2 file type etc

    Name:  file-formats.png

Size:  79.2 KB

    Hello I have attached a picture to clarify my problem. In a folder named headsq, a number of files with same name has been saved. I think these are some raw images. Type of file has been written as "1 File (.1)", "2 File(.2)" etc when clicked for the properties. Now I have a number of files. How can I save them with same just shown in picture i.e. as " 1 File(.1)", "2 File (.2)" etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here I have attached the properties of the file. I know these are raw image files, but what 1 File, 2 File etc means. Please help me clarify this.

    That's just the extension, like a somefile.doc is a .doc file. Since there's no application associate with .1, Explorer doesn't know what else to call it.

    What's your Visual C++ question?

    I have a series of raw image files. I would like to put all of them in a folder and use that kind of extension as 1 File (.1) for those images. How can that be done?

    I don't know what kind of answer you're expecting except to use the various file I/O functions, FindFirstFile, FindNextFile, etc.

    Again, what's your Visual C++ question? Where are you stuck?

    Re: Some suggestion about .1file type, .2 file type etc

    Thank you all for taking time to answer. I think I made every body a bit confused. As I mentioned that I have a set of raw images. What I would like to do is as follows:

    make a 3D meshed model out of the images.
    Before I was trying used some code written in VTK, but it requires images files to be of the form 1 File(.1), 2 File (.2) etc. That's why I was asking whether it is possible to convert my file type (.IMG) to that.

    Any way, I would like do it myself. I would be happy if anybody provide me some suggestions about its implementation.

    Thanks.

    What do you mean by "convert"? Just change the extension? Take the file and manipulate it in some way to be in a different format?

    The reason why there is confusion is that there is no specific Visual C++ question being asked.

    If the only thing you need is to rename your files then as Paul already suggested use FindFirstFile, FindNextFile API (or CFileFind FMC class) to search for (enumerate) all files you need to rename and use MoveFile API to rename (change the extension) the files.
    Or just rename them in Windows Explorer!

    You've yet to ask a meaningful question. You said, "Before I was trying used some code written in VTK, but it requires images files to be of the form 1 File(.1), 2 File (.2) etc. That's why I was asking whether it is possible to convert my file type (.IMG) to that.", and that really doesn't tell us anything. You need to be more specific about the current format and the format you need. All you've done so far is talk about extensions.

    I can take any file that I have access to and change the extension to anything I want. That "works" perfectly for me, whether I'm in Explorer, or with a program using rename() or other I/O function.

    So if that is not what you mean by "does not work", then you need to explain what you mean by "does not work".

    It would also help if you answered my previous question: What do you mean by "convert"?

    Do you mean

    1) Open the file and read its contents.
    2) Take those contents, apply some transformation to those contents, creating a different set of contents.
    3) Save those new contents to another file.

    Regards,

    Thanks for the suggestion. It would have been good if I could attach the file, but unfortunately I can't, the system does not allow. Now I would like to do what Paul suggested, reading the binary file, read the contents and diplaying the point clouds Later I would like to generate different iso-surface for different pixel values of the point clouds. That's the goal. Upto displaying of the point cloud, i am ok. But I need some help about generating iso-surface i.e. polyginizing for the model for different iel values. Thanks.
