DocScrutinizer05wpwrak: in LXI / SCPI how do you handle waiting for device to be ready? how do you check if a command succeeded? do you really check status / error after each command?18:51

DocScrutinizer05this is particularly nasty since wav:start and wav:end don't change to invalid values, and this a wav:data? will simply succeed using the previous values for start and end19:03

DocScrutinizer05I guess I need some other way to determine the buffer size (2.40M)19:05
wpwrakhmm, with my scope, i ended up having to guess the right timing. it would just overflow and lose (part of) commands. but i guess this has since improved a bit20:36
wpwrakif yours can buffer a command while another is executing, just try sending a command that does produce output. this will synchronize you.20:36
DocScrutinizer05nope, same issue as yours21:58
