Can WAVE be used for real-time display of data being acquired?

Not easily. If you have a UNIX application that can write data in a format readable by WAVE , it should be possible in principle to run it from WAVE 's Analyze window, and to use WAVE to review the data being acquired, using the \ovalbox{\rule[-.3mm]{0cm}{2.5mm}\small\sf ~Reload~} button in WAVE 's Analyze window to read additional samples as they become available. (WAVE will not attempt to read beyond what it thinks is the end of the record; if it ever catches up with the digitizing process, therefore, WAVE can only be forced to read further by using \ovalbox{\rule[-.3mm]{0cm}{2.5mm}\small\sf ~Reload~}, or by closing and reopening the record.)
