Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
Skippity is a versatile script-based automation controller for test and measurement instrumentation. It’s ideal for use on the test bench or for automating experiments in the lab.
Skippity doesn't rely on instrument specific vendor drivers so it can communicate with both legacy and current commercial instruments and also with devices you've designed and built yourself. Once you've told Skippity about your instruments and their commands using simple dialogs, you can use those definitions in scripts to create multi-instrument test sequences without worrying further about the specifics of your instruments.
Skippity's instruction set is easy to learn, and a built-in scripting tool does most of the work so you don't have to be a coder to automate your test rig or experiment.
Skippity scripts can control multiple instruments simultaneously via Ethernet, native RS-232 and RS-232 over USB, and can transparently interface with GPIB instruments via external protocol converters.
