DADiMP

Standalone data import module

DADiMP

DADiMP is a separate, standalone software module that extends the DADiSP importing functionality, allowing you to import data files with sophisticated formats. DADiMP imports your ASCII or Binary data files directly into DADiSP’s Labbook data structure without actually running the DADiSP program.

Unlike DADiSP’s standard internal IMPORT feature DADiMP is run from the operating system command line or from a batch file or shell script. Because DADiMP and DADiSP are completely decoupled DADiMP can run remotely on a separate data collection computer. By providing direct, non-interactive access to your data files DADiMP lets you automate, speed up and simplify your standard data collection operations.

Key features

  • Standalone operation.
  • Small executable size.
  • Fast and direct data file import.
  • Command line or header-based import parameters.
  • Imports single channel or multichannel files.
  • ASCII and binary data types supported.
  • Imports mixed binary files.
  • Import all channels or a selected subset.

New features

Previous versions limited the total file size to 2GB. DADiMP 5.0 uses a 64-bit file index to enable handling of very large files. Although each individual series in a file is limited to 2GB, the total file size is now essentially unlimited (file sizes in the terabytes). Thus, a data file can now contain any number of series where each series can be up to 2GB in length.

In addition, previous versions of DADiMP import series one at a time creating overhead in large interlaced files where DADiMP would take a separate pass through the data file for every series imported. DADiMP 5.0 keeps header info and buffers for as many series as possible and imports all of them in a single pass through the file, greatly improving performance on large interlaced files.

Because the DADiMP code base is fully integrated with DADiSP all new header keywords supported by DADiSP are automatically supported by DADiMP 5.0, including byte swapping, integer byte size, binary data types, date/time formats and dozens of others to simplify the importing of 3rd party ASCII and binary file formats.

DADiMP 5.0 new features summary

  • 64-bit file index supports terabyte file sizes.
  • Optimised ASCII and binary interlaced data importing.
  • Full DADiSP header format and keyword support.

Excellent! Very much appreciated how the content was tailored to our needs.

Excellent service received with queries I had when I had the trial EndNote. This was a factor which prompted me to go on to buy the product. An excellent service was received in response to a problem after the purchase of endnote.
