[time-nuts] TimeLab PM6690 CNT9X?

I just bought a PM6690/AN (CNT-90) and my inexperience led to quite a
roundabout path to getting it to work with either the Agilent 82357b or
Prologix GPIB-USB interfaces (using  Agilent IO Suite 16.3 or NI Max).
However, once I figured out the PM6690 front panel GPIB setup, Timelab
worked quite well using the PM6680 driver option,  So far it seems to be
capturing and plotting data quite well though I have not yet used all of the
Timelab functions.

CNT90 (aka PM6690) did not use to work with TimeLab, as CNT90 does not to
talk-only, which is the normal requirement for TimeLab generic counter

I don't remember if I managed to get it operating or not, but I could take
it for a test-spin if you like. The CNT-80 driver should work thought, as it
builds on the SCPI commandset.
