Testing


#1

I am testing some blocks to understand the synchronization in ofdm . I
edited c++ files & put std::cout for all variables in
frequency_modulator_fc_impl.cc and multiply_cc_impl.cc and then I
rebuilt
using cmake…/ then make then sudo make install . But when I run the
python file “./top_block.py” I got an empty output from vector sinks
also
I got only the values of variables in multiply_cc_impl.cc on terminal .
so
why the values of variables of frequency_modulator_fc_impl.cc aren’t
shown
on terminal !!!

Thanks.

Here is the python file

You should attached the files where you put the std::cout.
The std::cout should be in the work() function.

Here is the file . I wrote std::cout in the work() , why I don’t see the
output from this file on terminal after rebuilding ?!

Did you install the file after rebuilding it? That said, I don’t know
what you’re expecting to gain from this exercise. You’re going to see
a bunch of numbers fly by really fast. Wouldn’t plotting the output
with one of the waveform analysis tools be more useful?

I very much want to second this. We have all these nice plotting utils,
it helps to use them.

It seems like the work() function is not called at all by the scheduler.
Probably the ofdm sync block doesn’t produce any output to feed into
your
custom block.
I have not much idea beyond this.
The std::cout in work() should show something if executed.
