The purpose of the CAENComm library is to implement a common interface to the higher software layers, masking the details of the physical channel and its protocol, thus making the libraries and applications that rely on the CAENComm independent from the physical layer.
CAENComm is based on CAENVMElib, a library developed specifically for CAEN VME bridge (V3718, V4718) which implements the basic functions for accessing the VME bus (besides other specific functions for these bridge). For this reason, it is necessary that the CAENVMELib is already installed on your PC before installing the CAENComm; however, the CAENVMELib is completely transparent to the user.
