Designed to simplify network communications and speed up large systems, Repeat reads data from measurement hardware and broadcasts it to Windmill programs. It uses NetBIOS functions directly instead of the sometimes complicated Network DDE protocol.
Repeat continually transmits data. When Windmill programs need a new reading, they simply access Repeat's current data. This means you can run many copies of Windmill, without slowing down the system with hardware bottlenecks.
The Repeat program consists of two parts. One is the server which acquires data from the hardware. The other is the client which gives the data to the other Windmill programs.
