The Mensurasoft-System: Software Drivers for Scientific Devices in the Most Common Computer Languages on All Major Operating Systems with a Prototype API for Measurement Data Processing Applications - Practical Examples

8 19, P. Dieumegard


For years now, although many scientific devices have a port for computer connection, the diversity of various connection types results in lack of software able to use the totality of them. This paper presents how to: (1) build software drivers with a prototype Application Programming Interface API for scientific devices using dynamic libraries under various combinations of connection ports, programming languages and operating systems, (2) employ these drivers in software programs capable of managing more than one device at the same time, and (3) use two specific software implementations of this whole Mensura (Measurement) System to select appropriate built driver, define communication settings, and collect-store-process-present experimental data.
