data.localdata.get retrieves data that is stored locally on a station computer. It accesses both unarchived data and archived data stored in the sent and send directories. Only raw data is available.

data.localdata.get is normally called as part of data.get's lookup procedure, instead of directly.

Uses cpd2.send.conf to override the defaults of the CPD2 storage and sending system.

Command Line Usage

data.localdata.get station record start end


start and end

The station identifier code. For example 'brw'. Case insensitive.


The cpd2 record type to be retrieved.
