The options are realtime (not compiler options).

Well, it is quite different from what you wrote ;o)) (e.g. it uses
color bars, and not "| |") The core routine needed a complete
re-write, because the new driver (from NEWSTRUCT on up) no
longer sends out the SS, SNR, BER & UNC values as something
useable, but rather only as a number from 0 to 65535. This means
the routine now needs to calculate the dB & dBm and percent.
My output is:
decimal % value
true (dB or dBm) value
Depending on setup adjustment the length of each color can
be changed. I.e. *you* decide what values are red, yellow or
green. By saying upper red limit is equal to lower green limit
you get a two colored bar (instead of 3 colors) to satisfy all
those who don't like that many colors ;o)) This is NOT limited
to 50/50. If you say upper red limit is 33% and lower green
limit is 33% you will *still* get a 2 colored bar. In this case
the red bar is one third of the total length and the green one
is 66% (or twices long as the red bar) of the total length.
