How to debug PLEditor

Postby martingale » 20 Mar 2012

according to EL manual, there's a PRINT statement which supposely output at 'print log' windows, I didn't find such windows in PLEditor.
instead there's a 'output' windows in it, but how to make it work.
Does PL Editor has a manual somewhere, could anyone show me?

Look up PRINT.

There are examples and explanations.

*********************************************************************

Here is a simple example- just create an indicator with this code, apply it to a chart, then go into the power editor and watch the output window...

Code: Select all

vars:ave(0);
ave = average(c,20);
plot1(ave,"Ave");
print(date:6:0,",",time:4:0,",","Ave=",ave);
