Cumulus log file format on Raspberry Pi

From build 3044 the development baton passed to Mark Crossley. Mark has been responsible for all the Builds since. He has made the code available on GitHub. It is Mark's hope that others will join in this development, but at the very least he welcomes your ideas for future developments (see Cumulus MX Development suggestions).

Cumulus log file format on Raspberry Pi

Post by Adrian Hudson »

I run Cumulus MX on a RPI where it creates text files in the unix style (line endings just LF).

I have a Windows PC which wakes up periodically to run WXSIM. It copies the latest log file from the RPI and uses it in making a weather forecast. This part runs fine (wxsimate is happy with the unix style files).

Once a day the PC wakes up and copies the latest log file to use during wxsim's autolearn utility. Autolearn doesn't like the unix style files so I have knocked up a little utility to convert the files to windows style line endings.

All is happiness and light...

...except. I would really like the files to be in Windows style so that if the Pi were ever to fail and I needed to get Cumulus MX up and running, the files would be already in Windows style in the external backup I have going on.

Is there any way that Cumulus MX, running under mono on the Pi can be convinced to write its log files in Windows CRLF line ending format - does anyone know?

I pretty sure that CumulusMX (or .Net routines) itself doesn't care, you can run it on Windows with data files created on Linux.
