vrf P&P drivers, learn strings, ... (2)

Question asked by VRFuser on Nov 4, 2004
Question (2) below is probably premature: I've found something in the
archive that appears to answer that.  I would still be interested in an
answer to (1), and some general insight as to the pros and cons (?) of
using P&P drivers instead of Direct I/O.


(VEE Pro 6.2, WinNT)

I am currently interfacing an 8753B, though other 8753x's may need to be
supported later.  Right now, I'm trying to upload and store the Learn
String, using a Direct I/O transaction.  The upload itself works, but I'm
not clear on how to get the result into a file.

In the VRF archive, I found a similar question; one answer simply said to
use readLongLrnString() from the XIplug&play instrument driver.  I haven't
used any P&P drivers so far. has drivers for the 8753D &
E, but not explicitly for the 8753B.

1. I'm inferring from this that I can't use the P&P driver?

2. If I can't, I can still  read the Learn String with a Direct I/O
    'read BinBlock'.  How would I get this into a file?
