DAQ controllers

There are 2 types of DAQ controller. The one is 'babicon' which has the interactive character user interface. Other one is 'babicmd' which is command line based (one shot) type. In the usual case, users should use 'babicon'. In addition to these, a web-based DAQ controller is planed.
