BSDF file rotation tool?

I have BSDF (XML) files for horizontal blinds. I'd like to rotate them to be vertical blinds. Is there a tool out there that can perform such a coordinate transformation?

There is no tool for transforming XML files that I am aware of, unless WINDOW has such a facility. However, you can specify whatever "up" orientation you like using the Radiance scene primitive (type "BSDF") as described in the Radiance reference manual at

If you really need to rotate an XML, there is a way to do it using genBSDF, but you will lose accuracy in the process.
