A free loadable module that allows the loading and/or saving of a block of floats to a human-readable text file is now available in our Knowledge Base for version 4.x SoftPLC runtime systems. The TLM includes 2 TLI instructions:
FLOATLOAD - Loads a text file into a block of floats
FLOATSAVE - Writes a block of floats to a text file
An example of how these instructions can be used:
If multiple machines use the same logic but with different data, the machine specific parameters can be stored in separate files and then loaded when SoftPLC first starts up. This allows the SoftPLC *.APP (application files) to be identical, including the initial datatables.
