Data extracted!

Well much to my amazement Bambofy has managed to build a code to pull out the swimming pressure data from the hand sensors. Not that I doubted he could do it, just that I didn't think Python was appropriate for doing this extraction. Just goes to show - old dog's and new tricks can happen. 

My view of Python - from looking over the shoulder - is it seems pretty flexible for string manipulation, good for object coding, simple to produce plots (we would still be loading the plotting library in Fortran - Python variant knocked up in 10mins no lie!) and can add up. Not sure what editor is being used to build the code but it puts out a great psychedelic screen for doing the edits!

Not sure how it will get on with the next phase which will involve a bit more complex mathematics - we will see......
