Tcl/Tk Tools for EPICS Control Systems.

Author: Ron Fox

Abstract: The Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System (EPICS) is a control system in wide use in accelerator laboratories across the world as well as in large scale particle physics experiments. This paper will describe a Tcl package that provides access to EPICS control systems and a set of widgets that allow user interfaces to EPICS systems to be easily constructed. The extension will be compared and contrasted with the et_wish EPICS aware extended wish, and a justification for choosing to write a new extension will be given.
