Using a custom block

I’m looking for some information or references on what to do after
doing everything in the “how to write a block” tutorial in order to be
able to access this block from other GNU radio python programs, for
example changes to environment variables or whatever will be needed.

I also would like to know what to put into the “from gnuradio
import blks2” element in the GRC block XML file so that I can
use my custom blocks in GRC.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Is
http://gnuradio.org/redmine/wiki/gnuradio/TutorialsWritePythonApplications
enough? If not, perhaps your questions are too specific for a tutorial
and you might want to ask them directly.

Have a look at how the GRC blocks are defined in gr-howto…, that
should clear things up.
Good luck,

Thank you for the response.

I would like to use as GRC blocks the blocks that I create as described
in “How to Write a Signal Processing Block”. This is a somewhat
unconventional situation in that I need a way for an “installed”
application (i. e. grc) to use a locally created component, sort of the
opposite of the normal situation. I think the XML file for the block
should look something like:

<?xml version="1.0"?> Square2 howto_square2_ff HOWTO import howto howto.square2_ff() in float out float

When I copy this file into the directory where GRC stores the block XML
files (/usr/local/share/gnuradio/grc/blocks), GRC makes a “Square2”
block available for use. However, when I attempt to execute a flow
graph that includes this block, it fails as follows:

Generating: “/home/kurt/gnuradio/grc/wav_file_to_speaker.py”
Executing: “/home/kurt/gnuradio/grc/wav_file_to_speaker.py”

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/home/kurt/gnuradio/grc/wav_file_to_speaker.py”, line 17, in

import howto
ImportError: No module named howto


Where I need help is that I don’t know how to set up python and/or
environment so that python can import these components.


Thanks again for any help you can provide.

Kurt,

I think you want to write “from gnuradio import howto”
