Subject: Timestamp for each DRS4 waveform 

In the mentioned read_binary.cpp file you have the line where you read the event header

i = fread(&eh, sizeof(eh), 1, f);

The C structure eh now contains the full timestamp, and you can access it with 

eh.year
eh.month
eh.day
eh.hour
eh.minute
eh.second
eh.millisecond

Cheers,
Stefan

Hi DRS4 Experts,

I have been analyzing DRS4 binary data with scripts based on Stefan's (very helpful!) macro:

https://midas.psi.ch/elogs/DRS4+Forum/361

I would now like to look at the stability of my waveforms over a long period of time. In order to do this, I would need a timestamp encoded with each waveform. Are there timestamps within default DRS4 binary data? If so, does anyone have sample code for extracting them?

Best Regards,

Will
