The alarm text files *.txt are stored under
<Ziellaufwerk>\OP030\proj\text\al\<Sprachverzeichnis>
and the following name conventions apply to the language directories:
English
German
Italian
The files contain texts for the following alarm ranges:
alc.txt
alp.txt
alz.txt
All five language versions of each text file alc.txt, alp.txt, alz.txt must have the
same structure (sequence of numbers, number of lines, etc.) as the "master
language" (g).
The default texts contained in the *.txt files can be overwritten with user-
specific text.
It is also possible to add new entries to the files. If new lines are added, they
must always be added in the master language too before conversion (see
below).
The standard DOS editor (EDIT) can be used to modify the *.txt files.
Certain old ASCII editors may cause problems due to control sequences
embedded in the text; such editors should not be used. The VI and AEDIT
editors are known to cause such problems. Windows editors should not be
used to edit the texts on account of the different Windows/DOS character sets
(ANSI/OEM). If, in spite of this, Windows editors need to be used, a tool
supplied at the same time is required to convert the text file before the text
converter is used.
Call: a2o.exe <ascii.txt>. <oem.txt>
For use on the OP 030 hardware, the alarm text files must be converted into
alarm binary files.
Change to the directory <Ziellaufwerk>\OP030.
Enter mkalarm to start conversion.
The "mkalarm" procedure acts on all language directories and converts all *.txt
files.
Any errors are listed in a log file, which is displayed on request.
For the subdivision of the alarm number ranges and the syntax of the alarm
text files, please refer to the description given in the manual /IAD/, Chapter 1,
under 'Software and data'
