vrf Simple tutorials?

Question asked by VRFuser on Feb 13, 2008
Hi Tom,
 
Welcome to the wonderful world of VEE. I know a few years ago a couple of professors were writing a book on using VEE. I don't know how far they got on it though. I met them at a VEE seminar a few years ago. I have to admit the room got very quiet and they got lots of funny looks after the Agilent guy giving the talk mentioned parsing an input string and one of these "professors" stood up and asked, "What do you mean by parsing?"
 
VEE isn't immediately intuitive. It's a little awkward trying to wrap your head around the threaded program flow but once you do you'll find it a much more capable tool then the lab view/C++ types, who have never used it, will lead you to believe. The best way to learn is to dive in and start playing. The learning curve is steep for the first few weeks but it flattens out much sooner then other languages. You also have one of the best resources here on this list. Go ahead and ask the questions. As long as they are technical they'll be answered. After all, we are geeks and **** proud of it.

Subject: [vrf] Simple tutorials?


Hi Everyone,

My Name's Tom. I'm an engineering student at Durham University (in the UK). I have been assigned a final year project involving Vee Pro 6.0. Basically a previous PhD project created a testing rig to subject artificial toe joints to relistic forces and movements, using pneumatics controlled by a Vee Pro program.

The PhD student has since departed and is uncontactable, so I have been assigned the task of attempting to work out how the program works in order to improve it. The problem is, I am vastly inexperienced in programming in general. I have a bit of experience with C programming but that's it, so the Vee program is going way over my head (and to make matters worse, the help files are unavailable for some reason).

I thought that rather than asking specific questions, I would first ask in case someone could direct me to a newbie-friendly tutorial or similar to supplement the full manual pdf I downloaded? Apologies if this post is in the wrong section, but I really don't know what it would count as.

Many thanks in advance for your help,
Tom
