Collection to File¶
Concatenates all shards of a collection into a single file. All shards must have the same format. Validation is done to ensure that the format is concatenable. All shards of the input collection(s) must have the same format, and the output file format always matches the collection.
The purpose of this floe is to convert a fastROCS collection into a file that can be used with a FastROCS server (rather than floe).
