Picoscope PSD file format.

Post by KeithSloan » Sat Apr 05, 2008 6:02 pm

Is the Picoscope PSD file format documented anywhere? I would to look at writing some software to convert it to a different format.

Many Thanks

Hello Keith,

You will find an account of the .psd file format in PicoScope user manual (http://www.picotech.com/document/pdf/psw044.pdf) section 7.4

The most simple conversion would be to .txt, and that is also explained in section 6.10 of the user manual.

I too am trying to Bath convert .psd to .txt
(Eventually to import into excel- using the 'delimited by a space' option of the import procedure).

The problem at this point is that the XP command prompt does not understand psw as a command so I can only assume that since the program has not been registered to work in that environment I will need a full path to the program directory.

I have also been unable to find the 'psw' application anywhere on the computer.

Passing the same args to the win32 app yields nothing (unsurprisingly).

Have I to install the DOS package manually in addition to the XP package?

.psd to csv text file

The help documentation says:

psw -t run*.psd

I would like to point out that most XP users will find this code more useful:

cd c:/directory/where/your/code/is/

psw32.exe -t *.psd
