Is there any documentation that explains what is happening in the .tss files? 

Having to open the wavform in the tekScope software or on a scope to export a csv takes a very long time mainly cause that software is extremely slow ( at least on my machine). It would be great to be able to parse and export to csv using a script or command line tool ( that hopefully works on more OS's than just windows).

I found this old posting on a different tektronix forum ( not sure why there is two) But seems back then it was not published

No, there's no public documentation, although the thread you posted (which was posted in the old, and now read-only, forum) gives some hints to it being a zip file.

Exporting a csv is inherently slow because it's an inefficient way to store the data, I would instead suggest saving your waveforms as .wfm or .mat files, which have public documentation and result in far smaller files.

well look at that ... a TSS file is just a zip folder with all the wfm files a .set and a .png fancy... 

Thanks for pointing that out.

for anyone coming across this and wondering how to unzip and using linux/MacOS just use the unzip command on the tss file.
