I have harped about this before (and most probably will again): stay away from LabView if you want to keep your sanity. Point in case:
First of all, this is not an overly complex program. Or at least it wouldn't be, in any other language. It only has to control three instruments, using fairly simple syntax. But thanks to LabView's oh-so-simple "graphical" programming metaphor, you have lines and shit going everywhere. Furthermore, I've begun to not propagate error messages from module to module properly, just to cut down on the number of "wires" so I still have a small chance to understand what is going on in my main program. This does not make debugging easier. And now this:
Insane object indeed. I think I'll look into migrating the whole shebang to Matlab.
