I'm trying to passing current data from python to LabVIEW. The new data is generated every 30 seconds. I found this can be done by TCP. But I'm just wondering if there is easier way to achieve this. I'm thinking about if it is possible to set a time sleep at the beginning of the loop in python. Write to a text or dat file inside the loop. Then close the file right away at the end of the loop. Therefore I can read the data file in Labview while it is not opened by python.
