ReadECF

DESCRIPTION

Reads an IRIS Explorer Chart Format (.ecf) file into a lattice organised with the "LineGraph" module in mind.

INPUTS

WIDGETS

Port: Filename
Type: Text
The input file should have the following format:

#ECF V0.1

@PLOT
<Plot Title>

@LEGEND
<Legend Title>

@IVAR
<Name of independent (x-axis) variable>

@DVAR <I>
<Names of dependent variables, separated by commas>

@RECORDS <J>
<I by J values, separated by commas and/or carriage returns>

OUTPUTS

Port: Output
Type: Lattice
Constraints: 1-D
Constraints: double
Constraints: curvilinear
The single coordinate channel (x) is the independent variable, the data channels are the dependent values at each coordinate.

Port: Plot Title
Type: Parameter
The title for the plot.

Port: Legend Title
Type: Parameter
The title for the legend.

Port: Base Axis
Type: Parameter
The title of the independent variable providing the base axis.

Port: Variable 1
Type: Parameter
The name of the first dependent variable.

Port: Variable 2
Type: Parameter
The name of the second dependent variable.

Port: Variable 3
Type: Parameter
The name of the third dependent variable.

Port: Variable 4
Type: Parameter
The name of the fourth dependent variable.

Port: Variable 5
Type: Parameter
The name of the fifth dependent variable.

Port: Variable 6
Type: Parameter
The name of the sixth dependent variable.

Port: Variable 7
Type: Parameter
The name of the seventh dependent variable.

Port: Variable 8
Type: Parameter
The name of the eighth dependent variable.

Port: Variable 9
Type: Parameter
The name of the ninth dependent variable.

Port: Variable 10
Type: Parameter
The name of the tenth dependent variable.

KNOWN PROBLEMS

ECF files may contain more than 10 dependent variables, all of which will be read in. However, there are only outputs provided for the first ten variable names.
