GInOut Tips and Tricks


For offline processing of Viper.NET projects it is recommended to run GInOut in simulation mode. In simulation mode Hardware and data blocks are not initialized and temporarily replaced by Memory Mapped File Hardware. This not only increases Viper.NET’s startup and response time, but also allows all data to be set and read.

Also during the commissioning of Viper.NET projects on the target system it can be helpful to simulate the hardware, especially if several connections are necessary but not all are available yet.

Simulation mode is activated via command-line, either via `-simAllHw to simulate all connections or selectively via `-simHwsById.


Simulated hardware and the associated data blocks cannot be changed.
