NI-DAQ Function Reference Online Help, Version 6.6

First, I saw on the National Instruments Home Page that the PDF version of
the Function Reference Manual has been discontinued in favor of the Online
Microsoft Help format version. I really prefer the PDF because it prints
much nicer. Looking at the monitor as many hours as I do is unnerving and I
find the paper relaxing. The Microsoft Help format is better for searching
however. I would be much happier if both versions were kept in production
by National Instruments. (And even happier yet if they gave us developers
free hardback editions 🙂 )

Second, I was discouraged to find that v6.6 of the document (NI-DAQ Function
Reference Manual for PC Compatibles) does not list the DAQCard-AI-16E-4
under the
options for "NI-DAQ Functions Listed by Hardware Product." I
thought the DAQCard-AI-16E-4 was a popular product and I assume it still
supports the same functions in 6.6 that is did in the earlier versions. Why
was it left out? Can I still use the info for the same topic in the 6.5
PDF?

For the last part of my documentation gripes, in Appendix B for v6.5 under
"Valid Internal Analog Input Channels" the DAQCard-AI-16E-4 is listed in the
second block and the last block. The set of command is different for each
block so I looked in the v6.6 which lists only the first block and I went
with that. Is the appearance of DAQCard-AI-16E-4 in the last block on the
v6.5 doc a typo or does it have significance?

This doc can be found on ni.com:

To the best of my knowledge, yes it does.
