Hi Martyn, Ulrich,
the Plotter utility works really nicely for CSV data.
Ulrich, one question: how can I get plotter to interpret scientific notation
such as 100E-06 etc correctly?
I get data from my 53132A's serial port that looks like this:
"10* u" means 100E-06 (the star means not a significant digit, the u means
I format this with Wordpad (auto-replace "* u" with 0E-06) and the data can
be used by Excel that way.
But plotter does not seem to recognize "-100E-06" correctly.
How can I make this work?
