 As each station not in the table is found, an //xx// entry in the table above is assigned to that station and the corresponding single letter code is used thereafter. ​ If you have more than seven stations not in this table, or if you wish to assign the single letters that will be used for each stations, you must supply a file with new mappings and inform ''​difx2mark4''​ via an environment variable ''​HOPS_STATION_CODE''​ which should be the (local or absolute) path to a file with the new one-letter <-> two-letter pairings. ​ //E.g.// As each station not in the table is found, an //xx// entry in the table above is assigned to that station and the corresponding single letter code is used thereafter. ​ If you have more than seven stations not in this table, or if you wish to assign the single letters that will be used for each stations, you must supply a file with new mappings and inform ''​difx2mark4''​ via an environment variable ''​HOPS_STATION_CODE''​ which should be the (local or absolute) path to a file with the new one-letter <-> two-letter pairings. ​ //E.g.//
