EPICS

synApps: std

Module Owner: APS/AOD/BCDA: Tim Mooney

This page is the home of the synApps std module. At one time, this module contained virtually all of synApps. In versions compatible with EPICS 3.14, most of what was in std has been split off into separate modules.

Please email any comments and bug reports to Tim Mooney, who is responsible for coordinating development and releases.

Installation and Building

After obtaining a copy of the distribution, it must be installed and built for use at your site. These steps only need to be performed once for the site (unless versions of the module running under different releases of EPICS and/or the other required modules are needed).

  1. Unzip and untar the distribution, e.g. on Unix:
    gunzip std_R2-5-2.tar.gz
    tar xvf std_R2-5-2.tar
    Usually this is done in an EPICS 'support' directory. It will produce the subdirectory
    std/2-5-2
  2. Edit the configure/RELEASE file of the application that will use std to point to this directory.
  3. Edit std's configure/RELEASE file and set the paths to your installation of EPICS base and to your versions of other modules on which std depends.
  4. Run gnumake in the top level directory and check for any compilation errors.
  5. Please email  Tim Mooney  so that a record can be kept of which sites are using this software.
