I use Python, I don't want to dedicate a LCD monitor to run some
instruments, and I don't want to have to check said monitor to
find out what goes wrong.
Obviously, this requires you to be able to program Python...
I'm slowly building a set of python libraries for the various
instruments I have and the ways I talk to them (serial/SCPI, gpib,
ethernet etc) and make per-device (ie: hp3458a, hp3577b etc) libraries
on top of that which gives me high-level function specific calls
for each instrument.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
