*Obsolete* 4.2i iMPACT - In batch mode, when I try to set the baud rate for the MultiLINX cable, a fatal error occurs


Keywords: iMPACT, MultiLINX, baud, command line, batch, FATAL_ERROR:Portability:basutcmdarg.c:322:1.19, getargnum

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In batch mode, when I try to set the baud rate for MultiLINX RS-232 serial communications, a fatal error occurs.

For example:
>setmode -bs
>setcable -p com1 -baud 57600

Results in the following error message:

"FATAL_ERROR:Portability:basutcmdarg.c:322:1.19 - getargnum: value out of bounds"


This will be corrected in the next major software release (5.1i).

To work around this bug in batch mode, do not specify the baud rate.

The baud rate can be set correctly through the iMPACT GUI.
- Choose Output -> Cable Setup from the toolbar.
- Then choose "MultiLINX Serial" and select your baud rate from the pull-down box.
