The manual is mute about its intended use as far as I can determine.

Hello Steve,

44468A DATA ACQUISITION/CONTROL ROM PAC Page 58
The CMD commands locate the first type 5 instrument connected to the interface, selects it and send it information of the following nature:
Code:
CMD    XROM:21,47  Contents of 41C/CV ALPHA Register. CMDX   XROM:21,48  ALPHA Register followed by the absolute value of the integer portion of the X-Register. CMDXY  XROM:21,49  ALPHA Register, X-Register (as with CMDX) a "comma", the absolute value of the integer portion of the Y-Register.
After the command is sent, the 41C/CV will check the instruments Status Register for a syntax error.
