       atopconvert - convert raw log file to newer version

       atopconvert [-t version ] rawinput [rawoutput]

       The program atopconvert can be used to convert the layout of a raw log
       file to a newer version.  The only mandatory argument is the name of the
       raw input file. When no output file is specified on the command line,
       atopconvert only shows the version of the input file.  When the name of
       an output file is specified, the input file will be converted to the
       output file, or just copied when the input file already has the required

       The program atopconvert converts the input file (by default) to the
       format used by the newest version of atop and writes to the output file.
       With the -t option, an alternative target version can be specified for
       the output file (instead of the newest version) in the format major.minor
       (example: 2.3).
       After the conversion is finished, the output file can be read by the
       newer version of atop or can even be extended by that atop version.

       The raw input file should be at least of version 2.0!

       Files can only be upgraded to higher version, but not downgraded.
