DADiSP provides several functions for reading and writing data directly to and from a Window. These functions are accessible from the Data pull-down menu and the Worksheet command line.
The functions used to read data into a Window are:
READA Read an ASCII series
READB Read a Binary series
MULTIREADB Read a multi-channel Binary series
READTABLE Read an ASCII table
The functions to write data from a Window directly to disk are:
WRITEA Write an ASCII series
WRITEB Write a Binary series
WRITETABLE Write an ASCII table
These functions allow you to quickly read and write data to/from a Worksheet. However, the READ and WRITE functions do not support any header information (e.g. units, sampling rate, etc.); data read with the READ functions saved is not as a DADiSP Dataset or Series. Data read into a Worksheet in this manner can be saved as a DADiSP series by using SAVESERIES, or the File, Save As option from the pull-down menus.
