Interfacing BPQ32 and DXSpider (Windows version) assistance needed
- I am trying to gain enough knowledge to write a set of instructions on
how to interface BPQ32 and DXSpider. I would include these
instructions with a forthcoming new release of BPQ32.
I am not a DXSpider user, and I will not have time enough to do it
myself and still get the next release of BPQ32 out in a reasonable
period of time.
If someone has successfully interfaced BPQ32 with DXSpider and would
be willing to describe how it is done I will greatly appreciate it.
BPQ32 has three interface methods to interface with an application
running on the same machine. I should have mentioned that it's the
Windows version of DXSpider I am concerned about. Interfacing BPQ32
with the Linux version is a separate matter, and would be done by
running BPQ32 (since it only runs under Windows) and DXSpider Linux on
The three interface methods are Active-X (OCX), DLL and AGWtoBPQ. I
am most familiar with the OCX and AGWtoBPQ methods. I don't believe
Windows DXSpider uses the OCX method. A quick look ath the DXSpider
docs indicates that it does provide an AGWPE interface. I am assuming
that is the tcp interface? There is (or was) a AGWPE DLL interface,
but I think that has been retired. The BPQ32 AGWtoBPQ.exe program
provides an AGWPE tcp look alike interface, so this should be
relatively straightforward. As to an DLL interface, I believe that
John G8BPQ did provide a bpqperl.dll to accomplish this. Is anyone
If someone is willing to lend a hand I will appreciate it.
