Owning Palette: Connectivity VIs and Functions
Requires: Base Development System. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.
Use the Libraries & Executables VIs and functions to call code from libraries, such as dynamic link libraries (DLLs); to manipulate LabVIEW data for use in other applications; and to call code written in text-based programming languages.
|Call Library Function Node||Calls a DLL or shared library function directly.|
|System Exec||Executes a system command. Use the System Exec VI to execute or launch other Windows–based applications, command-line applications, (Windows) batch files, or (Mac OS X and Linux) script files from within VIs. With the System Exec VI, you can include any parameters within your command string that the executing command supports.|
|Pipes VIs||Use the Pipes VIs to pass data between applications on Linux. Pipes VIs simplify process synchronization by allowing separate processes to communicate with each other.|
