Could u suggest a suitable command line?
this one dusnt work ./usrp_rx_cfile.py  -f 2.4G -g 10 "-8 -N 1024
I assume there are default values specified for the other parses arguements

#!/usr/bin/env python

Read samples from the USRP and write to file formatted as binary
outputs single precision complex float values or complex short values (interleaved 16 bit signed short integers).

Hi shesha et all
Following is the reply from a forum which i got in response to a query to log raw data :
"Hi Sudarshan,

try the app usrp2_rx_cfile.py or usrp_rx_cfile.py depending on your usrp 
to store the raw data.



->execution of the same throws up errors
->any specific command line?
