The scripts in ~ns/bin are unfortunately not formally documented,
although most show "usage" commands if you run them with the argument
Also, many are used by the test suites and example programs so you can
use that as examples.
Debo is right that awk or perl post-processing is good for many, many
things, although some of the things in bin are meant to replace
constantly re-writing the same awk/perl program.
