I'm trying to read the following into an ascii analogin record:

"=V913 1.13e-04;59;11;0;0"

and to extract the 1.13e-04 or whatever. Using <%5k%f> just times out and so does <=V913%f>. Using %e makes no difference. If I read the value into a stringin record, there is no problem apart from the fact that it's a string.

Any suggestions?

If you don't find a format string that will work, you could just grab the
whole string and parse it with an sCalcout record, using the above format.
(See http://www.aps.anl.gov/aod/bcda/synApps/calc/R2-4/sCalcoutRecord.html.)


or use a genSub - which is what I tend to do in cases where you need
only a part of the string, or split a string into more than one part.

Aloha,
