     145Recent questions from experimenters
     146===================================
     147How do you upload your own script onto the sb consoles?
     148-------------------------------------------------------
     149Write the script in your favorite way. Then if you're on a windows box, use any sftp compatible client to upload it to
     150your home dir on gateway (thus your home on console). If you're on a linux box: type
     151'scp your_new_script.rb username@gateway.orbit-lab.org:folder/you/want/it/to/go/into'
     152
     153Do I  need to compile the code (or prepare it in any way) before uploading it on the console?
     154---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     155No, Ruby scripts are interpreted by nodehandler. You do not need to compile the script.
     156One way to check for syntax is to use the nodehandler flag -n i.e
     157nodehandler -n <script_name>
     158
     159This will run the script in debug mode and tell you if there are any syntax errors

     161How do we plot this data in an excel spreadsheet? Is there are a way other than manually copying it?
     162----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     163Please read 'Analyzing Measurement Results' section of the tutorial if you
     164have not done it yet. One straightforward way is to use mysqldump to export
     165your DB to comma separated values format, which can be exported into Excel
     166easily. In addition there are a lot of free tools that can do mySQL-to-Excel
     167conversion, such as

     169MySQL Query Browser http://www.mysql.com/products/tools/query-browser/

     177Is it possible to set the channel of operation of the 802.11 nodes dynamically or initially?
     178--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
