I'm quite surprized that d2asc isn't documented (at least with a man page).

d2asc is short for data-to-ascii.  It can read any datafile that kst can read, and outputs it as ascii (to stdout), honoring the frame range given on the command line, just like the change data sample range dialog.  

It doesn't make much sense for reading ascii data.  Not much for some formats like netCDF either, but for formats like dirfile, where there aren't many (any?) ways to read the data outside of kst, it allows you to export the data so any program can read it.
