Re-purposing my Linux program for the HP8753E VNA

Linux App for the HP8753E VNA

Just a quick update. I re-purposed the Linux program I was writing to use
with the HP8753E VNA I recently bought. Currently the App can download
scattering parameters from the VNA and display them on a custom widget.
It can also save those s-params to disk in .s2p format, read them back and display them.
All this is done using the GPIB interface and a Prologix GPIB to Ethernet adapter.

It is very slow, to download a complete set of s-parameters with 201 points
takes about 30 secs. I will add more facilities as and when I need them.
