First time user of the OpenLog, brilliant concept but I’m having problems getting my head around the basic Command structure. End use will be logging serial traffic in bursts of 15 bytes every minute generated by a PIC acquiring the data and I’d like to start a new directory each day and navigate accordingly all under control of the remote PIC.
For initial testing I’m using a terminal on the PC direct to the OL via a USB to TTL (3v3 Tx, Rx) adapter and have no trouble seeing any typed characters appear in the Log*.txt files, also have no problem accessing Command Mode and identifying the various results. The problem I have is how to escape CM on the fly and return to normal logging after changing to a newly made directory such that further logs appear in that directory?
If I issue a reset from CM the OL effectively reboots and continues to log in the root.
I’m thinking there’s something basic I’m missing but all the docs I’ve read don’t touch on it. Any help appreciated.
