Separate XY Pair into Weekday and Weekend Waves

// Demo showing how to split XY waves into weekday and weekend waves

//  DayOfWeek(dt)
//  Returns day of week as a number from 1 (Sunday) to 7 (Saturday)
Function DayOfWeek(dt)
    Variable dt                 // Input date/time value

    String shortDateStr = Secs2Date(dt, -1)     // <day-of-month>/<month>/<year> (<day of week>)
    Variable dayOfMonth, month, year, dayOfWeek
    sscanf shortDateStr, "%d/%d/%d (%d)", dayOfMonth, month, year, dayOfWeek
    return dayOfWeek   

// IsWeekday(dt)
// Returns 0 for Saturday and Sunday, 1 for the rest of the week
Function IsWeekday(dt)
    Variable dt                 // Input date/time value

    Variable day = DayOfWeek(dt)
    if (day == 1)
        return 0                // Sunday
    if (day == 7)
        return 0                // Saturday
    return 1

Hello hrodstein,

I am trying to incorporate the my date/time wave that includes all time stamps into your code, but the execution doesn't work on my part. How do I make this code automatically scan through my date/time wave and create an output to a new wave containing the 0's,1's? There must be a simple modification that I may have missed on my part. Thank you.
