[FieldTrip] Realtime question: tmsi2ft saving to gdf file

Dear Fieldtrip Users,

from the tmsi2ft description on the web (http://fieldtrip.fcdonders.nl/development/realtime/tmsi) I understand that tmsi2ft should allow to transparently save the acquired data to a gdf file while streaming it out.

I successfully can read the Signal/Event data acquired with tmsi2ft into Matlab using the realtime functions. However, I can't find a gdf file, and I can't see any place where a file name could be specified.  The command line accepts only the parameters

tmsi2ft config.txt [hostname [port [ctrlPort]]]

The parseFile() Method of the SignalConfiguration-Class does not seem to permit a specification of a filename in the configuration file, and I couldn't identify a call to ODM->setFilename() or ODM->enableSaving() in the tmsi2ft code (as opposed to the biosemi2ft code, where such calls are present and where the filename can be specified in the command line).

Therefore my question is: Did I overlook anything and can a filename for a gdf file be specified anyhwere during startup of tmsi2ft? Or is the only intended way to use the TCP command interface of the OnlineDataManager?

Thanks in advance for your help
