vrf Some questions we'd like to ask you

Question asked by VRFuser on Dec 10, 2002
Good idea, I use Matlab Script and import some Matlab functions but what
concerns me is Matlab's ability to control GPIB instruments. I feel that
this feature dilutes Vee's standing in the test community and may render
it useless. Most new-hires and co-op students are more comfortable
programming in text based form C++ and express "horror" and distain at
graphical based programming. It seems that graphical based programming
is for lesser people that can't program in command line fashion.
Snobbish to say the least! Several of our new programmers decided to use
Matlab exclusively. Needless to say this opened up a new can of worms
with two formats now having to be supported and when they left I had to
clean up their mess. I would like to have a version of Vee that can do
everything, especially one that blows LabView out of the water and a
scaled down version that can be upgraded when required. I would also
like to see an installer program (like LabView has)  for the runtime
version that installs the runtime engine along with the program you have
developed. This would make Vee more acceptable to the doubting masses I
encounter on a daily basis. Thank you.

Subject: [vrf] Some questions we'd like to ask you


Hi vrf-ers. It's Scott and Nicole again. We want to learn a bit about
your preferences for MATLAB with VEE.

We're thinking of repackaging VEE to make MATLAB an option, so that when
you buy the next release of VEE (let's call it VEE.next) you only have
to pay for MATLAB if you want it.

Users who don't want MATLAB would get a price break on VEE.next. Those
who do use it would be able to get it included with VEE.next at about
the same price as today, by purchasing the option. And if you want to
use the full MATLAB product with VEE, you would buy VEE.next without
MATLAB and connect your full MATLAB in just as you do today.

We'd like to ask you a couple of questions:

- are you currently using MATLAB with VEE?

- do you think that repackaging VEE as we describe above is a good idea?

We haven't made a decision yet on whether or not to make MATLAB an
option. Your input is important in this decision.

VEE.next - though we'd love to tell you more about VEE.next plans, we
cannot do so right now.


So if you'd like to make your opinion heard, please post your answers to
the vrf, or send them directly to Scott if you prefer privacy.

Best Regards,


Nicole Dierksheide
