RE: [tracker2] Re: Making cfg files without T2 attached
- Yeah, that's what I was suggesting. Not sure if that got through with all of the trouble Yahoo was having for a while there. It *should* work, as long as flow control is on. Without flow control, the problem is that the configuration has to be erased and re-written in flash memory, and during that period (some milliseconds) it can't process any incoming data.The alternative, if you can't use flow control, is to change the config file to contain a bunch of extra carriage returns after each command.Scott

Could this be acomplished by just loading a config txt file into a
you create a config in a OT2, display and log it to a text file.
then all you need to do is edit the text file and have the user paste
or play back the config using a terminal program?
Just an Idea, I perfer and like the terminal configuration much better
than the gui one, old habit I guess.
