1.3 Wrap It Up!
LabVIEW is a powerful and flexible instrumentation and analysis software system. It uses a graphical programming language, to create programs called virtual instruments, or VIs. The user interacts with the program through the front panel. Each front panel has an accompanying block diagram, which is the VI's source code. LabVIEW has many built-in functions to facilitate the programming process; components are wired together to show the flow of data within the block diagram. Stay tunedthe next chapters will teach you how to effectively use LabVIEW's many features.
You will find the solutions to every activity in the upcoming chapters in the EVERYONE directory on the CD that accompanies the book. We'll trust you not to cheat!
