Luca Conti - Flight Dynamics Module, interaction with Flight Gear - 
Mentored by Pierangelo Masarati and Andrea Zanoni


Brief description of what I did during the current week

During this week I kept writing my external module. I started developing 
a system to automatically detect which Flight Gear
data structure (NetFDM or NetCtrls) is read by the FileDrive specified 
by the user inside of the FileDriveCaller, whenever he
wants to use any FG data inside of his own MBDyn model. This was 
implemented in order to avoid a wrong or misleading use of the 
when coupled with a FileDrive which receives data from FG. A further 
advantage of this mechanism is that the syntax is very minimal,
it's enough just to type the desired field name and the label of the 
FileDrive used to communicate with FG.

draft of my edits:
