Clientraw.txt Header Contents
« on: March 31, 2008, 10:55:34 AM »
Hi.  Looking at the data in my Clientraw.txt file it shows the following:

Field# Label Type Contents
000 Header L 12345

I know the Header shouldn't contain "12345".  That seems like a default or something.  What should it be and how do I change it?  Thanks...

Hardware: Davis 6153 Vantage Pro2 with 24hr FARS & 6345/6470, Boltek Stormtracker PCI
Software: SERIAL datalogger with Virtual VP, VWS w/ VWSAPRS, Weatherlink, Weather Display, NexStorm w/ Discharge, etc.<br>

No.. that's correct.  The marker '12345' at the start and '!!vv.nn!!' as the last field are used to signify a complete clientraw.txt record.  The 'vv.nn' are the version.subversion of WD creating the clientraw.txt

You can see the complete (and decoded) contents of the 4 clientraw*.txt files by using and pointing it to your website.
The docs for what's in clientraw.txt are in the c:\wdisplay directory (clientrawdescription.txt) or on the web at
