uploading Learn strings in a program

Question asked by VRFuser on Dec 3, 1997
Hi Ken,
My methode is very silly, but works fine for me, though:
1- Manually set the instrument to the required setting.
2- Made a very simple VEE-program to aquire its learnstring (obvious:
first of all the instrument should be able to send it), and put this
as a single string to a file. This is my ".ini"-file.
3- At "applicationprogram initialisationtime", I read this string and
send it, as it is, to the instrument.

Most of the time you (at least I) try manually the default settings I
think I need. Once I'm confident, just run my readout program.
