Metex DMM driver

I'm currently looking to drive a Metex Digital Multimeter in Labview and was
wondering if anyone knew where I might find a driver. The multimeter that
I have is an M-4650 CR.

Thanks,

Spencer Nelson

It is trivial...

serial port settings:
1200 bauds, 7 data bits, no parity, 2 stop bits
Clear RTS and set DTR lines

It supports only one command "D\r"
and send back a string with its actual readings.

Jean-Pierre: How did you know how to set the 2 serial port signals?  I used your info and got some simple LabVIEW code to read the string sent from my 4650 DMM.  Now I'll create a driver for it and a practical app or two.
 
Spencer: Did you ever find or write a driver for it?  I'll send you what I come up with if you want.  Let me know if you have any ideas for what you might want it to do.
