I’m using the TCP driver to work with some data that sends a set number of unique entries and then terminates with !!
So I set up my driver to use a character based message delimiter type of !! set the correct number of fields (3 in this case), and then specified that the field delimiter was \r\n. Everything looks good and I can see my data, but I was a little surprised that even after specifying the number of fields, the entire message is dumped to a single string instead of unique elements of the string array I set up.
It’s no problem for me to set up a tag change script to parse it out, but I was curious what’s the point of the field count? Don’t I still have to set the correct delimiter type? And if I am going off an entire packet or character/fixed sized termination, it seems like the field count only creates needless problems when you set it up wrong.
