Viewing logged data in .dat files


#1

Hello all,

I have a question regarding viewing data that is acquired from log
commands which are stored in .dat files. Using “gr.file_sink”, it seems
that the encoding of the data is in a format that can’t be opened using
applications in Ubuntu. Does anyone know of a way to see the
information that is logged in these files?

For example, I logged data from the dbpsk.py script and wanted to view
the rx_rrc_filter.dat file that was retrieved.

Thanks

Take a look at:

Is the octaverc configuration file referred in the link you sent me the
same in /usr/share/octave/3.0.0/m/startup folder?

How is the “read_complex_binary()” script used? Can it be used in a
python script and if so, what should be imported?

Thanks
