PI Interface for UFL

PI UFL ._OK file rename should be after parsing to avoid data loss during shutdowns

My understanding of UFL (confirmed by tech support) is that it will rename files to ._OK extension before loading lines into memory. This means that if the service is stopped (such as during an update) and it has not completely read into memory an...

Please add a DAYOFWEEK function to the UFL interface

Can you please add a DAYOFWEEK function to the available functions in the UFL interface. This will greatly assist with the handling of daylight savings transitions (e.g. first sunday in April) as there is currently no easy way of determining the ...
