EPICS Database Builder

This Python module is designed to make it easy to build complex EPICS databases by writing a Python script. While writing record templates the corresponding dbd entries are checked to reduce the number of errors in the database.

A simple example of the use of this library is the following:

from epicsdbbuilder import *
InitialiseDbd('/dls_sw/epics/R3.14.12.3/base/')
SetTemplateRecordNames()

a = records.ao('TEST')
c = records.calc('CALC', CALC = 'A+B', SCAN = '1 second', INPA = a.VAL)
c.INPB = c

WriteRecords('output.db')
