Can you add some kind of "resume from the last test" after the error occurs?
I don't know - it depends on whether the error is recoverable. I suspect
it is not - i.e. that the whole instrument driver and application state would
have to be saved, torn down, re-built and restored. This would be
a lot of work and very tricky to test and maintain, all to work around
an error that shouldn't happen.
Far less work and a better result to fix the error.
The point is that the instrument drifts, and so needs recalibrating.
The initial calibration on each application start can be avoided
by using the -N flag, which is useful if you are using tools in
quick succession, but there is a timeout as well, and if it's too
long since the last calibration the calibration can't be avoided.
