If you ask me, we strip it out. I don't want any of the GUI stuff.
All I want is the data. As you can see in my version of streamingtests.cpp,
I just dump the 5,000,000 element array to an ASCII file, (BTW, if you get
rid of my goofy graph the sample data file reduces to 90MB. Quite a bit of savings over the 600mb datafile. Although, the 600mb file does zip down to 15mb, while the 90mb file zips to 12mb)
The graph and values is what I care about, not the goofy screen that I think is killing the data collection.
There is also something magical about the value 32512. I notice that number popping up a lot. as in when I first turn on the fast streaming, I collect 32512 samples, then I take a nap for either 1x, 2x, or 3x 32512 samples, and then I return to getting samples for about 600,000 samples.
My point is someone who knows about the Picoscope internals should be woken up by the value 32512, aka, its a buffer size, or a buffer size less some header packet, or something along those lines. Here's another hint,
2^16 == 32768, an important number in this system, 32768-32512 ==
254 as a header packet?? its awfully close to 256, aka 2^8. I don't know, maybe its nothing, but I suspect these values will trigger one of the developers noggins.
Meantime, I've never developed in VS C++, and all this GUI stuff is very forriegn to me, so stripping it out is a bit of an effort to me, I'll be looking at it this weekend.
Meantime if anyone can do it or even better, make a nice simple DOS/ Console version (like ps3000con) that works I'd love that. Hopefully with a nice complete MAKEFILE so I never have to deal with MS VS again!!!
( a 7 CD compiler and linker... good lord...)
