Hi Agilent Power Supply Programmers,

My name is Matt and I am currently an Application Support Engineer at Agilent specializing in our power products.  The division that I work for also is responsible for DMMs, Counters, some of our switching products, and function generators.  Part of my project this summer is to work on our programming examples.  I figured with this forum up and running, I could ask for some feedback directly from out end users.  I have a few questions:

1.  What programming languages and IO libraries do you tend to use most frequently?
2.  What do you look for in a programming example from Agilent?
3.  If we did not have the example in your specific programming language, would just straight instrument commands be ok (probably with a bit of psuedocode)?
4.  When you are looking for a programming example, how do you prefer to be able to search?  Should we have a page that describes the example and then includes the links to the different languages on the bottom?  Should we have a page for each specific programming language with each example listed at the bottom? 
5.  How often do you use drivers vs. just SCPI commands?

Any other feedback that you have would be greatly appreciated as well.  Thanks!  My goal is to make it as easy as possible for programmers to find the information that they need.
