b"Some Notes about the Pico104 Device Server\n\nPlease note that for the moment, there is no Linux version of the PT104 device driver. \nThere is a device communication library available for windows only. \nYou may check http://www.picotech.com for new/updated software.\n\nThe device server was compiled using the MS Visual C++ 8.0 compiler: .vcproj and .sln files can be found in the msvc/8.0 directory. \nThe information stored on svn applies to the debug release only. \nTo compile a non-debug release you must select the corresponding TANGO & OMNI libraries (the ones that don't have a trailing 'd').\n\nThe C/C++ preprocessor must be able to find the pt104.h file, stored in the pico_tech/ directory. \nAlternatively, you may look for the header file on http://www.picotech.com.\n\nApart from the TANGO and OMNI libraries, the linker also needs the pt104ms.lib file. \nA possibly outdated version of this library can be found in the pico_tech/ directory. \nCheck the above mentioned site for current versions of the library.\n\nIf you use Jive to test the PT104 device, bear in mind that the device driver response is slow. \nDo check that Jive timeouts are set to higher values than the usual ones!\n\n\n\nWeird behaviour/possible bug:\n\nApparently, the Reset command cannot delete previous channel configurations. \nIt might be that this is a communication software bug, rather than a feature."
