What files do I need in order to write a console app with a CEC KPCI-488 card and VC++6.0?

You will need to add the following files from the CEC488 directories to your project:

Add the following line in your .cpp file: #include "ieee-cpp.h" (c folder)


A very simple program is demonstrated below:

#include <ieee-c.h>

#define Address 16 // address of your GPIB instrument

void main ()


int status,l;

char r[80];

initialize (21,0); // make PC a controller at address 21

send (Address,"F0R0X",&status); // device command to set mode

enter (r,80,&l,Address,&status); // read a voltage

printf ("Data received=%s\n",r);
