ExtensionsThe following EPICS channel access client or other EPICS-related host programs (extensions) run on SPEAR hosts. They are either downloaded from other sites or developed at SPEAR and made available to other sites. Most extensions are listed in the EPICS collaboration extensions page. Unless otherwise noted, these extensions are built for EPICS base R3.14.11 on linux-x86_64 and solaris-sparc-gnu.
This list is a subset of all extensions in the SPEAR CVS repository (except labca). To add a new extension, follow the instructions in /afs/slac/g/spear/epics/extensions/src/README.
Note that labca is kept in the SPEAR Matlab CVS repository along with production Matlab applications that use it.
Note that java apps and other apps provided by vendors (ie, vdct, ImageJ, AVT_GigE_SDK) are kept in /afs/slac/g/spear/hostApps and are not all in the CVS repository.
