I have four DMM's capable of transferring data to a PC over a serial port. I need to acquire data from all the four, one at a time.
I have used the second serial port to select any one and then the software supplied with the DMM is run to acquire the data. After the acquisition I need to unselect the selected DMM, which I achieve by issuing a device select ID of "0". But I still have to run the company provided software for acquisition.
For the above selection procedure I have written a code in QBASIC. In the code I need to be able to run the company software (acquire.exe), and then complete the procedure by selecting "0" ID.
I have been able to achieve the same using "spawn" comand in 'C', but being a die-hard qbasic fan, I want the program developed in qbasic.
Can anyone help me in this matter?
Thanks in anticipation
