Hi Timo,
I'm all for unification if it's possible. At least, it would be good if the API could be the same, even if the implementation is separate. Then one can choose which application to use without rewriting code. Till's code supports Matlab and SciLab. I don't have a budget for Matlab, so I tried SciLab. It turned out to be rather slow for what I was trying to do. I am a long-time Octave user, and I discovered that bringing CA (in particular the EzCA library) calls into it was rather simple. Octave is, in my experience, faster and less buggy than SciLab. I didn't investigate mca, since I didn't have Matlab :). I would be happy to try and bring the Octave interface into coincidence with a Matlab one, if we can agree on the API.
Cheers,
Pete

Hello all,

we at PSI have been looking at the Matlab-EPICS interfaces. There seems to exist two: labCA and mca. We would like to select _one_ interface. To make that decision it would be interesting to hear your opinions and experiences. I had the (perhaps false) impression that mca was more widely used but seems to be currently without official support. I am not sure to what extent labCA is supported (i.e., can Till invest time in it, or is somebody else familiar with that.)
In addition there is the Octave interface (we have even our own...) but
I think the majority of us here would prefer going for Matlab.


Would there be any chances of consolidating into one interface package only? What are the advantages of one package vs. the other?

I would be grateful of any feedback.

Timo
