Before you start this, you'll need to make sure that the MVP data directory is shared on the network. The share name I've assumed is "mvp", if not, change the smbmount share name to reflect what it actually is (//192.168.1.30/SHARENAME).
First you need to mount the Heron MVP shared drive somewhere handy on your laptop.
sudo mkdir /media/heron_mvp sudo smbmount //192.168.1.30/mvp /media/heron_mvpOkay, you should be able to see the Heron's MVP data directory now:
ls /media/heron_mvpNow make yourself a working directory on your laptop somewhere:
cd /home/jonnyb/projects mkdir -p heron_trials/svp/jd085 cd heron_trials/svp/jd085 mvp_monitor /media/heron_mvpThe mvp_monitor script will keep checking for new .m1 files every 15 seconds, it will copy them over and convert them. You can use svp_tool to keep an eye on new files by running it in a separate console and clicking the "check" button as often as you like. I'm assuming you've got a map somewhere handy.
cd /home/jonnyb/projects/heron_trials/svp/jd085 svp_tool -svp *.svp -map /home/jonnyb/maps/saint_john_harbour.8bit
