Announcing Pythonlabtools

Pythonlabtools is a new repository at Sourceforge for miscellaneous python tools of use in a laboratory environment. It currently contains a base of tools providing: data acquisition support using the vxi-11 protocol (a protocol for gpib (IEEE-488) like devices over TCP/IP); the National Instruments DSTP protocol (for communicating between LabVIEW and external servers); an optics modelling module for treating diffracting and refracting optics with (for now) paraxial TEM00 gaussian beams; and lots of fitting and analysis tidbits. Stop by if you are interested.
