Hello, and im sorry in advance if this is not the best place to post this kind of doubt, but i have been searching all around the web to get some support but i cant find any...

I was wondering if anyone has that bit of c++ code that turns plw files to txt files...i ask this cause i just cant seem to get it working, and i cant really understand why.

Thx in advance

HI Zaraki,

Unfortunately we do not have such a programme, however the plw format can be found in the user manual under section 7.2 if you or anyone wanted to do this:
Kind regards

In this description of the PLW-format what do you mean with PICODATE and FULLTIME ?

Hi Maria,
They're obviously structure type definitions, like "UNS16" and "UNS32" (unsigned 16-bit integer and 32-bit integer respectively), but what exactly they are, I can't find either. Google doesn't help either. So ... unless you have a hex-editor and a .plw file of known contents ... the only thing to do is ask again.
I have a hex editor on my Linux box, and the potential to make such a file, but I'll be travelling for much of the next week or so, so won't be able to do anything about it for a while.
(This is a broad hint to remind the admins that the question is reasonable and still open.)
It's a signature, dammit!
