[time-nuts] OT: Need HP 7475A Drivers for XP or Linux

I did write some QuickBasic code for that plotter a number of years ago.
I used it to plot data from an HP 8566 that was subjected to calculations
that were more easily done in a PC than on the instrument.
I also plotted data from an HP network analyzer, forgot which.
If I recall, the commands are simple and the plotter is easy to control (if
you write your own code).
I am not aware of any drivers you can use with shrink-wrap software, but I
would be surprised if someone has not done that under Linux.
