Built-in software running on the companion Mosaic Controller implements C file manipulation functions and supports a standard DOS- and Windows-style "FAT" (File Allocation Table) file system, allowing files to be created on a PC and read via the CF Wildcard, or visa versa. An automated file processing capability facilitates fool-proof software upgrades and data exchanges.
A comprehensive set of file management functions modeled on the ANSI C file library lets you create, open, close, read, write, rename, copy and delete files. Other software features include directory listing commands that behave like the DOS DIR command, printing and file capture commands, and a powerful redirection capability that allows any function to take its input from a specified file and send its output to a specified file. This set of functions allows files to be managed from within the Mosaic Controller and/or the PC environment.
Fool-proof software upgrades are facilitated by the automated file processing feature. You can specify one or more files to be automatically loaded to or from the Mosaic Controllerís memory at startup. This powerful capability enables field software upgrades that are accomplished by simply inserting a pre-configured CF Card into the CF Wildcard socket.
