Creating incremental data files during a continuous operation

Hi,

I just wonder if there is a method built in GNURadio that will allow me
to
create incremental files (1.dat, 2 dat …) instead of a huge file in
continuous operation.

I did implement a similar structure by taking the data in buffers and
creating files afterwards. However I would like to know if there are
other
ways of doing this (without dropping samples or stopping the graph).

Thanks in advance
Burak

Thanks Marcus for the information.
However, I did not understand at which point I should do that change.
Should I use gr_head so each file contains exact amount of samples? Is
there an example that I can refer to?

There’s a set_file() method or some such on the file sink. Just call
that method any time you want to change the filename.

Now, if you’re doing this in GRC, it’s a bit trickier, because GRC isn’t
“procedural”. But for example, judicous use of a probe block
operating at a very low sample rate, and a helper function, could
allow you to change the filename at the rate of the probe
block.

You can change the output filename of the file sink at runtime.
