SIMION 8.0 Issues/Bugs/Enhancements

Filter issues by query:
Issue I488 [80,defect,resolved]
  Data Recording file not closed if Lua workbench program fails at top-level.

  Example:

    simion.workbench_program()
    print 'hello' -- does not get flushed to disk until file is closed
    error 'fail'

  If Data Recording is enabled "hello" was not written to disk after
  Fly'm abort because the file remained open (though it is closed
  upon starting the next Fly'm). This was due to a change in 
  Issue I258 "Log window cleared after top-level print() statements
  in Lua workbench program.".

  This is fixed in 8.0.5-TEST10.

  Possibly reported by ryand-http://www.simion.com/discuss/viewtopic?p=2258
    relating to Issue I486 "Data recording output taking long time to
    flush to disk.":
      Observed a case where an automated run completed normally but the
      data to the data recording file never got written.  However, on
      manually stopping the ions from flying (by pressing "Fly'm"), the
      file is written at this point with all of the remaining
      information from the log window.

  Affects 8.0.3-TEST7 and above.
  Resolved in 8.0.5-TEST10.
