NetCom is an application programming interface (API) library that you can use to create your own custom programs to monitor and control Cheetah. Netcom adds the ability to leverage multiple programs on multiple PCs to both monitor and control your experiment.
While the NetCom server is embedded within Cheetah, you create the client using the NetCom API. This requires that you have some programming knowledge in a language that is supported by NetCom: C++/MFC, .NET (e.g. C#, VB.NET, etc), any .NET aware application such as LabView, and Matlab.
