autoparamDriver is an EPICS module that facilitates writing a generic device
driver based on
asyn that does not know ahead of time which (or how many)
parameters the device supports, delegating the job of defining them to the EPICS
database. If you've ever used EPICS modules like
already know what this is about. In any case, check out the documentation to
autoparamDriver can do for you.
Note: When learning how to use
autoparamDriver, please do not try to
learn from the
autoparamTestApp included with the driver. As its name says,
it is used for testing and is not a good resource. Please refer to the
Tutorial section of the documentation instead.
Familiarity with installation of EPICS modules is assumed.
- EPICS base, tested with version 7.0.5
- asyn, tested with version R4-41
Dependencies for building documentation:
- configure the
configuration/RELEASEfile, pointing the
ASYNvariables to the locations where EPICS base and
asynare installed (this is more efficiently done by placing a
RELEASE.localfile a level above the
- configure any other build settings as needed for your EPICS environment (if you don't know what this means, it's probably not needed);
To use from another module:
- configure the
configuration/RELEASEfile of the depending module, setting the
AUTOPARAMvariables to the locations where the respective modules are installed;
yourIoc_DBD += asyn.dbd
yourIoc_LIBS += autoparamDriver
yourIoc_LIBS += asyn
- follow the tutorial in the documentation.
