LabVIEW gives you three big advantages over other programming 
languages:  graphical user interface, easy graphing of data, and easy 
GPIB.  If these are important to you, you may want LabVIEW.  It does a 
lot of other things, but these three are where it differs most from 
other programming languages.

You can download a free thirty day trial from the NI website:  

I've programmed LabVIEW for over ten years.  I've never tried ProfiLab
