How can I manipulate or inspect Rigel 288 data?

1. Configuration Data
1.1.Data format

Configuration data can be sent to and from the tester. The format is ASCII text strings. This makes it easy to add new configuration data at a later date. It also makes it easy to manipulate configuration data on a PC using a standard text editor.

The format of a configuration data file is :


















For example a typical configuration file might look like this:


Engineering Dept.
Sales Room

Client A
Client B
