Preferences files

( in the main code directory (e.g. .../ExperPort/) )

LabPreferences_Default:

- all BControl systems everywhere
- part of the CVS tree

LabPreferences_Custom:

- specific to one lab or even one rig
- NOT part of the CVS tree

LabPreferences_Custom_Sample:

- a sample custom file; simply rename this to LabPreferences_Custom and change preferences as desired
- part of the CVS tree


Preferences entries

( in any/all files; default values in bold )

Rig_Hostname__Prefix (string)

- 'bcontrolrig' is the default

Rig_Hostname__Realtime_Suffix (string)

- 'rt' is the default (rt: real-time linux)

Rig_Hostname__Experimental_Suffix (string)

- 'xp' is the default


Video_Recording (int)

- 0 for no video recording at start of experiment (after RUN press)
- 1 for video recording when the RUN button is pressed; see Video_Recording_Script

Video_Recording_Script (string)

- specifies a script file kept in the main code directory to run to start video recording. This script will be run on the first time the RUN button is pressed after protocol load, not running again until the protocol is reloaded before the RUN button is pressed again. For now, pausing, restarting, stopping, etc. is not supported (and will have to be done manually.)
- 'video_start.bat' is the default
