As discussed in private mail, I'll be giving E1406A IBASIC a shot thisLet me know if you need help in HPBASIC coding. When I worked at HP I used to teach classes for HP Engineers/Technicians on how to work/code with HPBASIC to control Instruments and take measurements.How much was there in common between the development of RMB and IBASIC
weekend, but I don't have a GPIB disk drive handy to be able to try that
too. If you get to that point, I'd be interested to know if that works.
I do a lot of work (like real feed-the-family work) with VXI systems,
mainly using V743 controllers. The availability of IBASIC for quick
immediate-mode trying things out and configuring modules sounds very handy.
The E1406A is a powerful controller that doesn't get enough
attention...I think a lot of people think that because E1406As were
available twenty years ago, that all E1406As are from twenty years ago.
It's still a current catalog product.
