CLIC\NEW_DATA [time] [tries]
Waits until new data has been written to the input file, then makes a
new index from all new data. The type of observation can be changed by
this command, but the index will contain only observations of one type.
Selection criteria defined by command SET are ignored.
This command can be used to make a quick look or analysis of data pro-
duced by a real time acquisition system (Plateau de Bure). Caution: on-
ly two programs should access the input file simultaneously, one for
writing the other for reading.
The first argument is the time interval between two consecutive inspec-
tions of the file index; the second is the allowed number of unsuccess-
ful attempts to find new data in the file. The defaults are 10 seconds
and 12 tries (two-minute timeout).
