fullnames containing : and .
channels have a fullname containing
: while counters have the same name with
. e.g. in flint test session
$ simu1.counters.spectrum_det0.fullname returns
while the corresponding channel has the fullname
further it is confusing to have the difference between the name that is exported to the shell
and the fullname
would it not be logical to use the same names in the shell as in in the HDF5 dataset?
lets take the following scan (session: test_alias) as example:
in the hdf5 this pops up as
+22_ascan +instrument +positioners +positioners_dial +measurement <HDF5 dataset "axis:roby": shape (3,), type "<f8"> <HDF5 dataset "dtime": shape (3,), type "<f8"> <HDF5 dataset "roi_counters:bla.sum": shape (3,), type "<f8"> <HDF5 dataset "simu1:spectrum_det0": shape (3, 1024), type "<u4"> <HDF5 dataset "timer:elapsed_time": shape (3,), type "<f8"> <HDF5 dataset "start_time": shape (), type "|O"> <HDF5 dataset "title": shape (), type "|O">
how is the user supposed to make the link between
roi_counters:bla.sum? Or in other words, why is there this difference?
