Snake Score and High Score Board

Read and organize serial data using NI VISA functions to track snake game scores

This VI reads serial prints from a chipKIT uC32 running a snake game. Each reading from the serial print contains two bytes. The first is a header that indicates whether the snake is alive or not and the second is the length of the snake. High scores prompt a user to input their name and the leaderboard is rearranged based on the score.
