vrf VEE for Linux?

Question asked by VRFuser on Apr 7, 2004
Hi Scott,

Too bad the VEE port to Linux didn't work.  Perhaps someday the 
demand will be high enough for the project to be completed.  Until 
then, I'll continue looking into the open source alternatives.  I 
have a list of them with FlowDesigner at the top.

I've contacted the author of FD about adding an interface for calling 
functions in a shared library.  If this can be done, it may be 
possible to add support for TCP, GPIB, and DAQ.  It's a start

Anyway, this is a VEE forum.  Thanks for the info.
