Description:

& Drawing on the experiences of a world-class LabVIEW development organization, "The LabVIEW Style Book" is the definitive guide to best practices in LabVIEW development. Leading LabVIEW development manager Peter A. Blume presents practical guidelines or " rules" for optimizing every facet of your applications: ease of use, efficiency, readability, simplicity, performance, maintainability, and robustness. Blume explains each style rule thoroughly, presenting realistic examples and illustrations. He even presents " nonconforming" examples that show what "not" to do-and "why not," Coverage includes Significance of style: How good style improves quality and actually saves time over the full project life cycle Before you code: Configuring your LabVIEW environment, and organizing your files on disk and in the LabVIEW project LabVIEW project specifications: A specialized standard for specifying LabVIEW application requirements Efficient VI layout and development: front panel, block diagram, icons, and connectors Data structures: Choosing data types, efficient use of arrays and clusters, and special considerations with nested data structures Error handling strategies: Trapping and reporting errors for robust and reliable applications Design patterns: Standard VI architectures and application frameworks that promote good style Documentation: Essential rules for source code documentation and streamlining the process Code reviews: Enforcing a style convention using a checklist, the LabVIEW VI Analyzer Toolkit, and peer reviews Appendixes: Convenient glossary and style rules summary This book will be indispensable to anyone who wants todevelop or maintain quality LabVIEW applications: developers, managers, and end users alike.
