the first IMa2 input file my toIMa2.py script produced successfully loaded and ran(in IMa2!) this morning. wahoo! i followed that up by working on toMigrate.py, which I've written to take an IMa2 file as input. i know this means that users will have to generate an IMa2 file, even if they're only interested in a Migrate file, but these files are small and fast. also, the two formats are very similar and the IMa2 files have all the components necessary for Migrate format, so it was easy to code. i'm currently working on getting the toMigrate.py output files successfully running with Migrate, which is proving tricky. off to GitHub then more fiddling with Migrate. good start to the week!
