    Read atop log like .txt file


    hi all,
    I've a problem, I must give at another person my atop log but they are binary file and this person can't read binary file.
    Is it possible read atop log like a .txt file, afterward like he/she read my shell?

    for exemple:

    Code:
    atop file
    
    date        hours          process
    
    18.8         20.02         knaspshot
    There is no possible to do an image .gif or .png to be clare, thanks in advance.

    simply redirect standard out to a file and it will create an ascii file for you.
    e.g. atop -M 60 30 > /log/atop.log
