agiload is a downloading tool for data and screenshots from Agilent oscilloscopes of the 5462x series. It uses the off-the-shelf RS232 connection of the scope.

This tool can download screenshots form the scope in tif and bmp format:
agiload scr screen.tif
screen.tif - downloaded screen shot

Furthermore downloading of the sampled signals is possible:

I've tested this tool with an Agilent 54621A oscilloscope and Linux 2.6.26 .
