Also look at John Ackerman's stuff:
http://www.febo.com/geekworks/data-capture/index.html  His approach is quite
a bit smarter than mine, in that he uses completely-different processes for
acquisition and display.  If you would prefer to learn a lot of smaller
tools versus coding everything yourself in C/C++, John's methods are really
nice.  Realistically, that's a better way to go for most people.
