 Note, only formal vex files are supported as input to vex2difx.  Similar looking ovex files used at some/all Mark4 correlators are not acceptable, however, with a small amount of work an ovex file can be hand converted to a valid vex file.  It would not be hard to write a conversion script to do this automatically. Note, only formal vex files are supported as input to vex2difx.  Similar looking ovex files used at some/all Mark4 correlators are not acceptable, however, with a small amount of work an ovex file can be hand converted to a valid vex file.  It would not be hard to write a conversion script to do this automatically.

 +===== vex2 support =====
 +
 +On Aug 1, 2021, the vex2 committee completed the definition of vex2.  The final version of the format definition can be found [[https://safe.nrao.edu/wiki/bin/view/VLBA/Vex2doc|here]].
 +
 +difx2fits will be gaining vex2 capability in the [[https://svn.atnf.csiro.au/difx/applications/vex2difx/branches/vex2|vex2]] branch of vex2difx.  A log of supported vex2 features implemented in this branch can be found [[vex2support|here]].
