Keithey (and other manufacturers) have a standard syntax for communicating over serial. Typically, commands look like (source):

:SENSe:FUNCtion “RESistance”
:SENSe:RESistance:RANGe <n>
:SENSe:RESistance:MODE <name>
:SENSe:RESistance:OCOMpensated <state>
:SENSe:VOLTage:PROTection <n>
:SENSe:CURRent:PROTection <n>
:SOURce:FUNCtion <name>
:SYSTem:RSENse <state>
:OUTPut <state>
:READ?

What is the the of this standard syntax?
