# 9.10. Standardize Model Species Names¶

This script enables the automatic renaming of species names of of two or more Chemkin files (and associated species dictionaries) so that they use consistent, matching names. Simply pass the paths of the Chemkin files and species dictionaries on the command-line, e.g.:

python standardizeModelSpeciesNames.py --model1 /path/to/chem1.inp /path/to/species_dictionary1.txt --model2 /path/to/chem2.inp /path/to/species_dictionary2.txt


The resulting files are saved as chem1.inp and species_dictionary1.txt, chem2.inp, species_dictionary2.txt and so forth (depending on how many models you want to standardize) and will be saved in the execution directory.
