This library provides Python VISA bindings for GPIB, RS232, and USB
PyVISA started as wrapper for the NI-VISA library and therefore you need to
install National Instruments VISA library in your system. This works most of
the time, for most people. But NI-VISA is a proprietary library that only works
on certain systems. That is when PyVISA-py jumps in.
