Language of choice

Post by richhutchins » Tue Jan 28, 2003 5:46 am

For 99.5% of what I want to do, PicoScope software works just fine. Just to tinker for learning, I want to try writing my own software. What language does Pico use to write the PicoScope and PicoLog software? VB, C/C++, Matlab, ext. Has anybody set up a data link between Pico log/scope and matlab?

Hi Rich,

We use 'C' for most of our applications. There are no functions available to link directly into PicoScope (its a stand-alone application).
PicoLog however, uses Dynamic Data Exchange so if you know how to program with this, you will be able you retrieve data from the application (I know that VBA can do this in Excel).

In terms of speed, there is no substitute for writing your own software with the drivers provided though.
