Abstract : The use of computers to control instrumentation can provide improvements in quality, quantity and turn around time of work carried out by a laboratory. These improvements must be balanced against the time taken to write the programs that control the instruments. This work documents a library of instrument control routines used to facilitate the task of programming and to enable the full advantage of computer controlled instrumentation to be realised.
