Decode an item from a Nortek AD2CP file header (an internal function)


Decode an item from a Nortek AD2CP file header (an internal function)


ad2cpHeaderValue(x, key, item, numeric = TRUE, default)



an adp object that holds AD2CP data.


Character value that identifies a particular line in the file header.


Character value indicating the name of the item sought.


Logical value indicating whether to convert the return value from a string to a numerical value.


Optional value to be used if the item is not found in the header, or if the header is NULL (as in the case of a split-up file that lacks the initial header information)


String or number interpreted from the x[["text"]], or NULL, if the desired item is not found there, or if x is not of the required class and variety.
