Dear Carsten,

I'm certainly interested to test that under Linux, what is your planning to that ?
What is the maximum number of PVs monitored, tested up to now ?


Thanks,
- Mauro

What is "CA Lab"?
--------------------
"CA Lab" is a user-friendly, lightweight and high performance interface between LabVIEW™ and EPICS.
This project uses proven EPICS BASE libraries (V3.14.11), a "CA Lab"-library and 3 "CA Lab"-VIs.


Why another EPICS<->LabVIEW™ interface?
--------------------------------------------------
LabVIEW™ needs only this simple interface to connect to any EPICS variable.
You DON'T need OPC nor Shared Memory Variables nor Network variables nor NI IO Service nor any other service to get and set EPICS variables in your VI.
It's not necessary to create a LabVIEW™ project to use this interface.
No problem to create an executable of your VI and to distribute it.
EPICS time stamp, status and severity are bound to resulting values.
Epics variables are available as cluster:
* Values as string array
* Values as double array
* Size of array
* Type of received data
* Status of values as string
* Status of values as integer
* Severity of values as string
* Severity of values as integer
* EPICS time stamp as string
* EPICS time stamp as integer
"CA Lab" is open source and works with all LabVIEW™ versions from 7.1 to 2009. It has been tested under Windows XP® and Windows 7®.
It should be no problem to compile source code under Linux.
