fsc2 is a program running under Linux for controlling spectrometers. Programs for remote control of spectrometers usually are home-written and often restricted to doing a certain set of experiments with only a fixed set of devices. In contrast, fsc2 is much more flexible because it was written with three main aims:
It should be easy for the user to set up a new experiment without having to change the program itself.
Devices should be exchangeable and support for new devices should not necessitate any changes of the basic program.
Users doing just standard experiments should only need to interact with a simple graphical user interface.
This flexibility was achieved by making the program an interpreter for a rather easy to learn but powerful enough scripting language called Experiment Description Language (EDL) and employing a strictly modular approach to the handling of devices. This allows users to set up a new experiment or change an already existing one easily without requiri
