The pltdrv Test Program

pltdrv is the Perl5 version of the Tdrv test program. See Testing with Tdrv for details on pltdrv's features and operation.

pltdrv uses the perl/Tk package to provide a windowed interface identical to the other Tdrv programs. perl/Tk is available from the CPAN archives.

pltdrv is distributed as a Perl5 program consisting of the following files:

pltdrv Program Files Program entry point. Background server process entry point. Hex format and conversion routines. Resource file. Statstics formatting routines. Status Report formatting routines. Test data frame handling routines. Verified transmission (Vtx) frame handling routines.

The pltdrv project uses the Laygo and Laygo::X21bis packages.

To start the program, enter:

perl [.cfg files]

For instance, to start pltdrv using the Hardware Emulation driver in loopback mode, enter:

perl stack6.cfg x21loop.cfg
