I'm a electronician working in a engineering school, and we have a problem with an acquisition program written with TPascal 6, with NI librairies to include to the source program. The card used is a PC-LPM-16 card, in an old PC using DOS (i don't know which version !). There are no drivers installed, but NI gave us (this was long years ago i suppose) pascal librairies to include to our sources, and some example rpogram of data acquisition. We're just trying to use one of this program, called "DQDBXMPL". When we run the program (the ".exe" !), the acquisition seems to be weel done, but all datas are saved in a binary file which i can't open with any program i know. All i can understand in the so urce is that 2 functions are used to write/read the data in this file : there are called "Blockwrite(...) and Blockread(...). I haven't got the source of the librairies, so i can't know how do these functions work !
Can somebody help me ?
Thanks from an electronician trying to understand programming science !
