How about a config file?

I think it needs something like:
  A symbolic name (used by top level PYLT code)
  The type of instrument (from the set of supported ones)
  The type of access hardware
  Possibly more info like
    GPIB Address

I'm thinking of something like a line for each instrument.

There is overlap between the type of access hardware and the /dev/whatever  
If you use symbolic links you can derive one from the other.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
