The hspfbintoolbox is a Python script to read Hydrological Simulation Program Fortran (HSPF) binary files and print to screen. The time series can then be redirected to file, or piped to other command line programs like tstoolbox.


  • pandas - on Windows this is part of the Python(x,y) distribution (http://code.google.com/p/pythonxy/)
  • baker - command line parser
  • tstoolbox - utilities to process time-series
  • construct - a binary parser


Should be as easy as running easy_install hspfbintoolbox or pip install hspfbintoolbox` at any command line. Not sure on Windows whether this will bring in pandas but as mentioned above, if you start with Python(x,y) then you won't have a problem.


Just run 'hspfbintoolbox.py' to get a list of subcommands:

Usage: /sjr/beodata/local/python_linux/bin/hspfbintoolbox COMMAND <options>

Available commands:
 time_series  Prints out data to the screen from a HSPF binary output file.

Use '/sjr/beodata/local/python_linux/bin/hspfbintoolbox <command> --help' for individual command help.
