Serial Communications Plugin

Category: Input/Output
Description: This is a plugin which enables serial communications from the scripting environment via NI-VISA. It has been compiled with the GMS3 DMSDK and as such should not be expected to work with previous versions. The source code has been provided in a zip file for anyone who might like to modify or port it to another version.
Comments: There is a short bit of documentation in the zip file, along with the compiled plugin and the source code. Two examples are provided - one which reads an identifier from a generic serial device and prints to the screen, and one which acquires a waveform from an oscilloscope and displays it as a 1-D image.
Acknowledgements: Dave Mitchell's site was indispensable in getting started writing a plugin and Bernhard Schaffer provided essential and invaluable details along the way.
