I think posting to this newsgroup may be a long-shot, but here goes.
We have an HP logic analyzer and a Tek 'scope that both have a GPIB interface and a 'print' button. Does anybody know of anything I can hang on the GPIB bus to capture the 'print' requests? I need the hardcopy printouts so I can document the hardware and show the software guys how things work.
If anybody is interested, I found a slick system for easily getting GPIB hardcopy images into a Windows program where I can print it, insert it into a word processor, etc. I found it at http://www.wavecpature.com. According to the website, you install this package, connect a GPIB cable to the PnP card, and hit the "print" button on the test equipment. The test equipment "prints" to the Windows program which saves the image as BMP, GIF, JPG, PCX, PNG, TIF, or TGA files. Just exactly what I need!
I ordered my package today. I should have it in a few days. I'll post my findings here when I have used it for a day or two.
