This tool can read linear process specifications in textual format and store them in the aterm format that is used by most of the tools. This tool performs the inverse operation of lpspp. When the argument for the output location is omitted, the tool prints to stdout. When both the arguments for input and output locations are omitted, the tool reads from stdin and writes to stdout.
