[DATA TIME] = readFlukeFile(FILENAME), reads a CSV file with recorded measurements from a Fluke multimeter. It returns DATA (a vector of measurement values) and TIME (a vector of measurement times). The "time" of each measurement is the elapsed time in seconds since the start of the recording session.

The expected workflow is the following:
1. Configure the Fluke multimeter to record a series of measurements
2. Use FlukeViewForms (TM) to download the measurements, and export them to a CSV file
3. Use readFlukeFile to read the CSV file
Example:

[data time] = readFlukeFile('sampledata.csv');
plot(time, data);
xlabel('time in seconds');

NOTE: This entry requires FlukeViewForms (which is available with many of the Fluke models). To communicate with a Fluke 45 multimeter (which supports SCPI commands), see http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/17679
