Parsing WFM Oscilloscope files in C

So, I got this Rigol Oscilloscope – I wrote a little instructable about it. One cool feature is the ability to save waveforms to a USB stick. There are many options for the file format, but the default is a WFM file. Now, a true minimalist could just use the CSV option, but the WFM is a binary format that contains a lot more information directly from the scope. I wrote a little C program hosted on github that allows you to convert those pesky proprietary files into something useful – namely a gnuplot image!

This is super alpha, and I’ll happily take patches. Cheers!
