libgpib0-dev 3.2.09-2 (ia64 binary) in ubuntu hardy

 The Linux GPIB Package is a support package for GPIB (IEEE 488) hardware. The
 package contains kernel driver modules, and a C user-space library with
 Guile, Perl, PHP, Python and TCL bindings. The API of the C library is
 intended to be compatible with National Instrument's GPIB library.
 The General Purpose Instrumentation Bus (GPIB) is a short-range digital
 communications cable standard connecting electronic test and measurement
 devices to control devices. Developed by HP in 1970 (and then called HP-IB)
 it has been standardized in 1978 by the Institute of Electrical and
 Electronics Engineers as the IEEE Standard Digital Interface for Programmable
 Instrumentation, IEEE-488-1978 (now 488.1).
 IEEE-488 allows up to 15 intelligent devices to share a single bus by
 daisy-chaining, with the slowest device participating in the control and data
 transfer handshakes to determine the speed of the transaction. The maximum
 data rate is about one megabit per second. Paraphrasing the 1989 HP Test &
 Measurement Catalog: HP-IB has a party-line structure wherein all devices on
 the bus are connected in parallel. The 16 signal lines within the passive
 interconnecting HP-IB cable are grouped into three clusters according to
 their functions: Data Bus, Data Byte Transfer.
 To use these packages you have be using a 2.6 kernel, install
 gpib-modules-source, compile a gpib-modules-KVERS package out of it, install
 that and libgpib0 as well a libgpib-bin. Documentation and headers are
 contained in libgpib0-dev. Language bindings for python, perl and php are
 available in separate packages as well.
 This package contains headers, documentation and static libraries.
