NOTE: This is no longer supported. The gpib support that is part of asynDriver is the successor.
This is Benjamin Franksen's Generic GPIB support converted to work with base release 3.14.0alpha2.
Eric Norum started with Benjamin Franksen's Generic GPIB driver and
converted it to work with EPICS R3.14.0alpha2. Marty Kraimer extracted
the NI1014 support from the old gpib support and modified it to work
with the generic GPIB driver.
Neither Eric or Marty want responsibility for the GPIB support. We are providing this release so that Benjamin and other interested users can see how it is supported on 3.14.
The LAN GPIB (HPE2050A) support has been tested on vxWorks, Linux, Solaris, and RTEMS.
1) When it is started on solaris the following message appears:
hpGenLink(151020): VXI: unknown error (create_intr_chan)
Everyting seems to work OK BUT LAMs were not tested.
2) On linux LAMs are not supported because the RPC library is not thread safe.
The NI1014 is supported only on vxWorks.
For Benjamin's Documentation.

The second example is for the NI1014. The example is support for the DG535. Again even is you do not have this device the example shows you how to build and execute support using the NI1014.
