It is also possible to assign all plots to the flatfile at once. This is done when the AllPlots button in the Flat File Dialog is pressed. In this case the 32 first plots are assigned to the flat file.
When the requested number of plots are assigned to flat file
column numbers, the Apply button is pressed.
Then the file selection part of this dialog becomes sensitive. The user now selects the name of the flat file. The default directory is at the user's home directory, and the default file name is igr.flat .
When the Ok button is pressed, the flat file is created.
If the file exists, a small dialog, the igr save verify dialog appears. If the selected file can be overwritten the user presses the Yes button. If not he has to press the No button.
When saving spectra (i.e. data with dimension 1) each spectra is saved in one (long) line.
The leftmost column in the flat file is the time for each
sample. When the SecOfDay is selected the
time column is the total seconds of the day.
# Time start at: 2003-04-08 07:50:00.0 # Time interval: 10800.000000 s # # Seconds of the day , Cluster 1 efw E p4 10Hz any SC # [s] [V] 28200.022665778 -3.347459 28200.222665778 -3.307652 28200.422665778 -3.322317 28200.622665778 -3.387267 28200.822665778 -3.45012When the SecFromStart button is selected the time column is the seconds from the start of the interval.
# Time start at: 2003-04-08 07:50:00.0 # Time interval: 10800.000000 s # # Time from start , Cluster 1 efw E p4 10Hz any SC # [s] [V] 0.022665778 -3.347459 0.222665778 -3.307652 0.422665778 -3.322317 0.622665778 -3.387267 0.822665778 -3.45012In this case the third sample has the time 2003-04-08 07:50:422665778 .
# Time start at: 2003-04-08 07:50:00.0 # Time interval: 10800.000000 s # # yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ss.sZ , Cluster 1 efw E p4 10Hz any SC # [ISO time] [V] 2003-04-08T07:50:00.022665778Z -3.347459 2003-04-08T07:50:00.222665778Z -3.307652 2003-04-08T07:50:00.422665778Z -3.322317 2003-04-08T07:50:00.622665778Z -3.387267 2003-04-08T07:50:00.822665778Z -3.45012When several plots are printed in a flat file, they are printed below each other in the flat file . (In this case the user is guaranteed a correct time for each sample.)
