Introduction to Script 2

In Introduction to Script - 1, we introduced the flow from creating a Script to executing it.

This time, let's create a Script that records an arbitrary character string to a specified file.

String recording can be achieved with the command PRTSTR.


Records and saves the string "Hello SigNAS3" in the specified file.

I wrote only the following line with a text editor and saved it in the file name Print.ssl.

 PRTSTR 01 "Hello SigNAS3"

  command   PRTSTR: Record a string to the result file.
  Parameter01: Save to Result File.
The setting values for recording other file types are as follows.

02:Dump File

04:Compare File

08:Error Count File
  ParameterHello SigNAS3 String to be recorded

However, all files are recorded in lower case letter.

When executing this script, it is necessary to prepare the recording destination file and specify the location in advance.

Specify the Result File (framed in red below) on the GUI Script setting screen.

In this example, the file name is Script0.rst.

It can be specified by pressing the Browse button on the GUI.

As shown in the figure below, the character string written in the Script is recorded and saved in the specified file.

※ In the above example, Parameter is unchecked in the GUI, but if it is turned ON, the result will be as shown below.

In Script, write the name of the file to be recorded and saved with the FNRSLT command.

 FNRSLT 0 Script1.rst

 PRTSTR 01 "Hello SigNAS3"

After executing the above script, the string will be recorded in the file Script1.rst.

In this case, even if the settings shown in Method 1 are made in the GUI, the recording will be saved only in his file specified in this script.

  command   FNRSTR: Specifies the Result File name.
Other types of filename specification commands are:
FNDUMP: Dump File
FNDUMP: Dump File
FNECNT:  Error Count File
Parameter0: Create a new file.
1: Append if the specified file already exists.

Specify the file location with an absolute path or a relative path from the folder containing SigNAS3.exe.

If there is only the file name, it will be recorded in the folder containing SigNAS3.exe.

In this way, any character string can be recorded in a specified file as an index or memo for recorded measurement data.

 This is brief introduction of the files listed above. Please refer to the Operation Guide for details.
