int HAMLIB_API rig_get_channel ( RIG rig,
channel_t chan 

get channel data

rigThe rig handle
chanThe location where to store the channel data

Retrieves the data associated with a channel. This channel can either be the state of a VFO specified by chan->vfo, or a memory channel specified with chan->vfo = RIG_VFO_MEM and chan->channel_num. See channel_t for more information.


  channel_t chan;
  int err;

  chan->vfo = RIG_VFO_MEM;
  chan->channel_num = 10;
  err = rig_get_channel(rig, &chan);
  if (err != RIG_OK)
      error("get_channel failed: %s", rigerror(err));

The rig_get_channel is supposed to have no impact on the current VFO and memory number selected. Depending on backend and rig capabilities, the chan struct may not be filled in completely.

Note: chan->ext_levels is a pointer to a newly mallocated memory. This is the responsability of the caller to manage and eventually free it.

RIG_OK if the operation has been sucessful, otherwise a negative value if an error occured (in which case, cause is set appropriately).
