Get access to available Programmer objects.

Programmers come in two types:

  • Global, previously "Service Mode" or on a programming track. Request these from an instance of this interface.
  • Addressed, previously "Ops Mode" also known as "programming on the main". Request these from an instance of AddressedProgrammerManager.

This interface also provides a reserve/release system for tools that want to pretend they have exclusive use of a Programmer. This is a cooperative reservation; both tools (first and second reserver) must be using the reserve/release interface.
