Specifies whether to send an END indicator on the last byte of each write operation. This property is relevant only in VISA Write and related operations. The default is TRUE.

On Serial Instr sessions, if this property is set to FALSE, the write transmits the exact contents of the user buffer, without modifying it and without appending anything to the data. If this property is set to TRUE, VISA performs the behavior described in the Serial Settings property End Mode for Reads (ASRL End In).

On GPIB, VXI, GPIB-VXI, TCP/IP Instr, and USB Instr sessions, if this property is set to TRUE, VISA includes the 488.2 defined end of message terminator.
