VDrive2 USB Stick Datalogger

Write to the datalogger

This program will add an incrementing data value to a log file on an USB memory stick attached to the VDrive2 datalogger.

Code Example:
symbol loopcounter = b1
symbol point       = b2
symbol first_byte  = b3
symbol temp        = b4

init:	pause 500		; allow 500ms to wake-up

main:	; create a log file called 'log' (for some reason 'log.txt' didn't work)

	sertxd ("<Sent> Open file",CR,LF)
	hserout 0,("opw log",CR)
	gosub get_response

	sertxd ("<Sent> write to file",CR,LF)
	bintoascii loopcounter,b5,b6,b7 		; convert loopcounter byte to 3 ascii digits
							; and write 8 bytes loop_xyz
	hserout 0,("wrf ",$00,$00,$00,$08,CR,"loop_",b5,b6,b7,CR)
	gosub get_response
	
	sertxd ("<Sent> Close file",CR,LF)
	hserout 0,("clf log",CR)
	gosub get_response
	
	inc loopcounter					; increment counter
	goto main					; repeat
		
	; Sub procedure to receive background bytes

get_response:
	pause 1000					; wait a while	
	sertxd ("<Response> ")
	
	point = 0					; reset local pointer
	
	get point,first_byte				; Save the first reply byte
	
	do
	   get point,temp				; get returned byte
	   sertxd (temp)				; transmit it
	   inc point					; increment pointer
	loop while temp <> CR				; if not CR loop
	
	sertxd (LF)					; Add a LF to the received CR
	sertxd (CR,LF)					; Do another blank line

	hserptr = 0					; reset the background receive pointer 
	return
