Hello,

I've scoured the internet for hours trying to figure this out, and I keep seem to find an answer.  According the SCPI reference manual, you can specify a file name via MMEM:DOWN:FNAM, and then write to that file using the command MMEM:DOWN:DATA <binary_block>.  The example given in the manual is #15Hello.  My question is, how is the number 15 calculated?  How about some other examples, such as the following:
