comedi_set_filter(3) select a filter for a subdevice


#include <comedilib.h>

int comedi_set_filter(comedi_t * device, unsigned int subdevice, unsigned int channel, unsigned int filter);




This function selects a filter for a subdevice. For instance, a digital input subdevice may provide deglitching filters with varying cutoff frequencies. The filters are used to prevent high-frequency noise from causing unwanted transitions on the digital inputs. This function can tell the hardware which deglitching filter to use, or to use none at all.

The filter parameter selects which of the subdevice's filters to use, and is driver-dependant.

This function is only useable on subdevices that provide support for the INSN_CONFIG_FILTER configuration instruction.


0 on success, -1 on error.
