Sounds like someone doing the same thing with OBD 2 stuff that several have done with the older ECM/PCM/CCC reader programs. You can do the same thing with a parts store scan tool, I have one I purchased at Advance Auto several years ago for reading and clearing codes for something like $70, and it should cost less for the same thing now that they've been around a while.

Not saying he doesn't have a program than read into it much more, and actually tell you what the codes it reads mean, which would be a really nice feature, but for my OBD2 needs the scan tool does it, and for the older GM stuff I have the same setup you are asking about.
