Re: how to launch fslurp
I got in contact with the author of the program. This was his response to my question.
There are two issues with being able to run the program.
The first is whether or not the binary shipped is compatible with
your installation. If it isn't you will need to rebuild it.
Rebuilding it can be done with the following steps:
$ cd /wherever/you/put/it/fslurp-0.5
$ make clobber
And then to run it, from the same directory:
$ ./fslurp -h
This will display the following help message:
Usage: ./fslurp [-b baud][-d delimiter][-H][-h][-p device][-r report][-v]
-b baud Set the baud rate. Supported rates are:
2400, 4800, 9600, and 19200. Defaults to 9600.
-d delimter Set delimiter for CSV-style output. The
default is no delimiter, human-readable.
-H Display the delimited output header for the
current reporting mode. The -d option must
also be set.
-h Display this help message.
-p device Set the serial port device. Defaults to /dev/ttyS0.
-r report Set report type. Supported types are:
now, day, total, and all Defaults to now.
-v Enable verbose, debugging output.
1 Communications failure.
2 No active inverter found.
3 Usage error.
4 Fronius protocol error.
At this point, you are running the program, and you will need a serial
cable from your Linux box to the Interface Easy Card in your Fronius
