DADiSP 6.5 B01 Release Notes
DADiSP 6.5 includes a number of exciting new features and enhancements.
The majority of these changes and improvements are the direct result of
customer requests and interaction.
New Stripchart Facility
DADiSP 6.5 supports the display and processing of multi-column data plotted
like a familiar stripchart recorder. Properties such as trace color, axes
placement and color attributes are easily specified. Calculations on a
stripchart extend to each trace and automatically yield a corresponding
output stripchart. Load entire Datasets or any combination of individual
Series into one or more stripchart views.
Integrated MATLAB® Code Execution
The DADiSP MATLINK Module (included in DADiSP 6.5) provides a seamless
interface for executing MATLAB code directly from DADiSP. DADiSP 6.5 processes
any built-in or custom MATLAB functions or scripts just as if they were
native DADiSP functions. MATLAB and DADiSP functions can be freely mixed
and DADiSP 6.5 immediately plots series and array results from MATLAB.
MATLAB Code Execution MATLINK hot-links MATLAB code inside a DADiSP Worksheet
such that dependent functions automatically update in response to source
Extended Graphic Objects and Manipulation
Enhanced rectangle, ellipse, polyline, polygon and text objects offer
improved custom annotation capabilities to any data plot. Set text or shape
properties with a mouse click. A powerful object-handle interface allows
programmatic manipulation of any text or shape annotation.
Visual Data Editing
Visual Editing A mouse-based data editing and clipping facility supports
freehand visual editing of any data Series. Manually remove outilers or
edit specific sections of data with pen-like mouse movements and optionally
limit data to a visually specified clipping line or clip box.
DADiSP 6.5 extends SPL, DADiSP's Series Processing Language, to provide
both function and file based static and global variables. A new form based
custom dialog box facility enables the inclusion of GUI specifications
and related SPL functions in one combined file. SPL's C/C++ syntax offers
a familiar and clean programming style allowing users to create SPL Debugger
custom functions and procedures using standard programming techniques.
Integrated SPL Debugger
DADiSP 6.5 provides a source-level, GUI based debugger to simplify the
development of custom SPL functions and routines. The debugger offers one-click
source line stepping and variable examination, on-the-fly expression evaluation
and variable assignments, function and line based breakpoints, call stack
manipulation and color coded syntax highlighting of SPL source files.
The DADiSP 6.5 Function Reference has been significantly expanded and
enhanced. Examples from the on-line help files can be cut and pasted directly
into a DADiSP Worksheet for immediate evaluation. Mathematical background
information and algorithm details are provided for many functions and routines.
Updated Dataset and Series GUI
Load Series Dialog Box Streamlined Dataset and Series interface allows
any Dataset or combination of Series to be loaded into separate Windows
or into a single Window as a multi-channel stripchart. Easily examine Series
properties and select target Windows and stripchart plotting options from
a uniform GUI.
DADiSP 6.5 automatically adjusts the Worksheet or Window for maximum utilization
of a printer's graphics capabilities. Add Worksheet title and footer labels
to further annotate output results. Specify plot attributes such as color,
margin alignment, borders and text justification through simple Print Preview
And 100+ New Functions
DADiSP 6.5 includes over 100 new built-in and SPL routines spanning the
areas of matrix and series manipulation, signal processing, math, color,
series generation, curve fitting and statistics. DADiSP 6.5 now offers
over 1000 analysis routines with an intuitive and familiar user interface
to provide one of the most comprehensive and easy to use data analysis
tools available today.
