Hey guys,

Not sure if this is the best place to ask this question since this is kind of 'software' related. But since it is for an RF application and you guys might have had experience with it, I am hoping you can help me out.

I am just starting out as a student and as part of my project work, I am supposed to complete a Data Acquisition System for a commercially available digital receiver, all in Linux. I completed the driver development part for the digital receiver. But I am still struggling with the rest - the actual data acquisition program, what do headers mean, what information they convey, how are they supposed to be programmed, how to build a GUI and a software scope for the data. I have no prior experience in coding for any of these requirements. Kindly help me out - I do not want any direct answers or cookbook recommendations but a general direction in which I should proceed and the concepts I need to learn to eventually be able to complete the task.
