drcsim_gazebo contains a bin/bdi_parser executable. I believe it converts data from Boston Dynamics config files found in atlas_description/raw into urdf. When I run it, it seems by default to use drc_skeleton.cfg as output. The screen spew seems suspect, and I have no idea if an actual output file was created. So...

Anyone know the usage?

Is there source code?

What does it output?

Hi @BillB,

It was a tool I wrote to convert BDI cfg files to URDF; at the time not expecting anyone else to try and use it :)

Here's the source code:

Given I interpreted the BDI cfg-format from data files, the parsing process is very brittle as you can probably infer from code.

Here's some notes I had for myself, but I am pretty sure it's out of date.

Thanks John, that's the answer I was hoping for.
