Has anyone delveloped Labview code to read the header, footer, & data from SPE files created by Lighfield software (camera/spectrometer) ?  If so, would appreciate to share.

I have resolved my own issue!  The vendor provides VIs to read the data portion of the SPE file, and also the footer / XML section, albeit not directly ( a subvi ).  And I have determined I don't need the binary header, because the footer contains all the attirbutes of the experiment that is needed.

Please provide a link to the VIs and mark that post as the solution to close the thread.

Turns out, the SPE footer is in XML format.  The routine to read the footer is available amoungst the sample VIs provided by the vendor with the install of Lightfield.
