(bufferIdData id [start [count]]) (bufferIdDataAscii id [start [count]])
The query buffer ID as returned from an interpolate command.
The offset into the buffer of the first required data value. The default is 0, the position of the first value.
The number of data points to be transferred. The default is the maximum number available (ie. the number required from start to the end of the buffer that will return those data point values in one transfer).
bufferIdData returns a binary data buffer, or nil.
bufferIdDataAscii returns the data in the buffer as an ASCII string, or nil. The format of the string is as follows:
(bufferIdDataAscii id start (timei datai) ... (timem datam))
where "i" is the value of start and "m" is start + count - 1. In other words, a total of count pairs of (time data) are sent.
This command returns the result of the specified query as a binary buffer of X-Y doubles. To facilitate transfer of large buffers, the start and count parameters can be used to transfer the buffer in portions. The buffer will persist until it is explicitly destroyed with the bufferIdDestroy command.
The bufferIdDataAscii command gives you a way to get human-readable data with lsend, gsend, or Gamma, without using dll calls.
