API for Agilent Digital Multimeter
I am new to Linux, using Ubuntu 9.04. I need to gather data from an Agilent Digital Multimeter model 34410A. So, I am looking for an API to do so. I am having a lot of trouble understanding some of the material I found through some Google searches, such as information about "USBTMC". I do not even know if it is relevant for my goal.
Basically, I want to be able to take some readings from the multimeter and output them into the terminal. I just need some IO commands to do so.
Would be very grateful for any information. Hopefully this is in the correct forum.
