StreamDevice

StreamDevice is a generic EPICS device support for devices with a "byte stream" based communication interface. That means devices that can be controlled by sending and receiving strings (in the broadest sense, including non-printable characters and even null-bytes). Examples for this type of communication interface are serial line (RS-232, RS-485, ...), IEEE-488 (also known as GPIB or HP-IB), and telnet-like TCP/IP.

StreamDevice is not limited to a specific device type or manufacturer nor is it necessary to re-compile anything to support a new device type. Instead, it can be configured for any device type with protocol files in plain ASCII text which describes the commands a device understands and the replies it sends.
