Re: [wuhu_software_group] Limiting the size of history.dat (HW Pro Format) output by WUHU.

HeavyWeather Pro 3610 to graphically display historical history files.
Note: I save a separate copy of my customised *chart.tee(s) in case I mess with then
(via Chart Configuration->Edit) a lose the format that I like. As the new charting has
many configuration options.
