(To be removed) Disconnect and delete all instrument objects

This function that uses serial, Bluetooth, tcpip, udp, visa, or gpib will be removed in a future release. Use serialport, bluetooth, tcpclient, tcpserver, udpport, or visadev instead. For more information on updating your code, see Compatibility Considerations.




instrreset disconnects and deletes all instrument objects.


If data is being written or read asynchronously, the asynchronous operation is stopped.

instrreset is equivalent to issuing the stopasync (if needed), fclose, and delete functions for all instrument objects.

When you delete an instrument object, it becomes invalid. Because you cannot connect an invalid object to the instrument, you should remove it from the workspace with the clear command.
