VRf-need-help Writing a driver using DWT

Question asked by VRFuser on Jun 17, 1996
Hi Guillermo
     Below are a couple of components from a driver I wrote for the HP3784a
     BER test Set.
    
     They are real number input components so should be similar, hopefully,
     to what you're trying to do.
    
     Are you remembering to re-compile the ID after each change in the
     code?
     I can't remember if VEE warns you if the source code ID and the
     compiled .CID are out of step with each other.
    
     Regards

                ENTER Bit_Count_Valid FORMAT '#,K';
                ENTER Bit_Error_Count FORMAT 'K'; 
        END ACTIONS;
     END COMPONENT;

     Writing an driver - Guillermo Cabezas <cabezas@erols.com>
    
     I am writing a driver for a device using the Driver Writing Tool. Most
     of it works except when this device sends back a string after a query.
     Editing the id file, I try a few things as changing format 'k' that is
     assigned to numerical answers but it didn't work.
     Drivers reference manual must be coming in a few days.
    
     I will appreciate any suggestion.
