Process (so I can remember)

Export database table to file

hip=# BEGIN;
BEGIN
hip=# CREATE TEMP TABLE copper_runs AS
hip-# SELECT to_char(run3,'099.99') as run3, \
  to_char(run2,'099.99') as run2, \
  to_char(run1,'099.99') as run1 FROM ss_copper_lab ORDER BY date ASC;
SELECT
hip=# COPY copper_runs TO '/clients/users/copelco/copper_lab.txt' NULL AS '-';
COPY
hip=# ROLLBACK;
ROLLBACK
hip=#

Add 3 second time interval to data file

#    run3    run2    run1
