Re: [tracker2] PATCH command
- Well, I'm trying to PATCH the script memory... I've turned off the
script engine (SCRIPT OFF), and then tried to send the PATCH command
to the unit via an RF message.
With the APRS message limit 67 characters, we run into a bit of an
issue right away.
Which is the output from the Patch List button in the script editor
page creates lines that are 76 characters long. Add in another 4
characters for "cmd " and you're up to 80 characters.
I would guess that the purpose of the PATCH List output on the script
page is to be able to send the PATCH commands to a remote unit over
the air. Perhaps the output should be reduced in length so as to be
useable without having to be hand modified down to a size that can be
sent over the air. Make each line ale to patch a total of 16 values
rather than 32.
To get the above to be able to be sent, I have to chop it up manually as such:
It's not overly hard, but if the purpose of the PATCH command is to be
able to send patches over the air via messages, then the standard
output should be short enough to be able to be sent via an APRS
