DADiSP 6.0 B18 Release Notes

SPL Functions

Along with built-in routines, DADiSP includes many SPL functions located in the main SPL directory. These functions are arranged by category and reside in appropriately named sub-directories within the SPL directory.

To quickly obtain information on any SPL function, use the help command. For example, to obtain help on the SPECGRAM function, type:

            help specgram
