Title: SpyderData.xml support
Post by: laynevincent on August 21, 2018, 10:03:42 AM
Hi All,
I am new to the forum so please be kind.
I have been setting up TED to work with my implementation of RainMeter. I need information that SpyderData.xml can provide but I have no documentation for that file. Do you all know where I might find documentation for the available arguments(switches) for SpyderData.xml?


P.S. I searched the forum for any reference to SpyderData.xml but found none. If I missed it please point me in the right direction.

Thanks for the kind reply.
I have received the docs as supplied by David (very nice fellow). Unfortunately these docs do not include any information on the file in question.
Since posting this a few days ago, I have successfully guessed/interpreted the file well enough to get the data I need for RainMeter.

I now have all of my TED and Spyder data displaying on my Windows desktop. While I still plan to build histograms for each of the Spyders, for now just having the textual data will suffice.
