      Ingest binary data in a byte array into a structure.


Calling Sequence

      s = ingest_bindata(text, bindata)


      text = String array with data description. in
      bindata = Byte array with binary data. in

Keyword Parameters


        COMMENTS=cmt Returned array of comments for each tag.
        /REVBITS means extract bit fields starting from most
          significant bit (else least).
        /SWAP_ENDIAN means swap endian of each item.
          (does not apply to extracted bit fields).
        /CHECK means check text for total bytes.
          Returns check text in s. Does not extract data.
          Use TOT_BYTES=nbyts to return total number of bytes.
        LENCHECK=maxlen check tag names for length (def=8 char).
          Use /COMMENT to check comment lengths (def=48).
        /QUIET do not list check text for /CHECK mode or LENCHECK
            mode. Still lists any error messages.
        /DETAILS gives details on text description.
        /NOCOPY do not grab lines with + in column 1.
        ERROR=err Error count (0=none).


      s = Returned structure. out

Common Blocks


      Note: Ex comment check: t=ingest_bindata(txt,bin,comment=cmt)
                            more,tag_names(t)+' --- '+cmt
        From the total number of bytes returned by TOT_BYTES in
        /CHECK can get a structure for directly reading the data:
        (Can do direct reads only if there are no bit extractions)
