PicGraph 1.0.b screen.
PicGraph is in early development at time of writing, I wanted to get the new PicLog out as soon as possible and haven't had time to give PicGraph any more than the most basic of features.
I will continue to develop PicGraph over the next few weeks.
The zip file below contains the new PicLog 2 and PicGraph 1 in executable ready to go form, along with several files needed for program operation. A few files of interest are the calibration.txt and config.txt files, which store the program settings, and the OpenPage.vbs file, used for accessing the remote server, if you want to use remote logging. The PicLog.tkn and PicGraph.tkn files are the tokenised files, these will be updated as new versions of PicLog and PicGraph are released, we wont need to ever update the PicLog.exe and PicGraph.exe files.
The zip file includes the logfiles directory, with a couple of sample files. The PicAxe folder has the updated PicAxe source code.
A note about the open source nature of this project. I've rewritten the PicLog in Just BASIC, a free to download and use language, for the followng reasons. To give others the opportunity to learn a programming language, to understand how a logging software application works, to develop their own versions of the PicLog to suit their own needs, and to share. I ask, in fact I insist, that if you do develop any project based on the PicLog, or to interface with the PicLog, that you also share your software with everyone else on the forum, and you include the full source code, so others can learn from what you have done. If you wish to develop your own projects based on what you have learned from the PicLog, but don't wish to share the code openly with others, say for a commercial reason, then you may not use the PicLog name or icons.
If you find a bug or have a suggestion to improve the PIcLog system, please share it with others on the forums or contact me on the About TheBackShed.com page.

Note - Non English speaking countries.
There have been a couple of problems brought to my attention for PC's set to languages other than English. First up, the JustBasic run time file wont work corectly in some Asian countries. Secondly, the serial data from the PicAxe is converted to the characters of the selected language on the PC. As the PicLog program is written to look for specific english characters, this can cause it to not reconise the datastream. The solution for these problems is to run the PC with English as its language. Thanks Pete for sorting this one out.
If wish to play with and understand the PicLog source code, you can download Just BASIC for free from here.
