Installation and Building

After obtaining a copy of the distribution, it must be installed and built for use at your site. These steps only need to be performed once for the site (unless versions of the module running under different releases of EPICS and/or the other required modules are needed).

  1. Unzip the distribution:

    gzip -cd delaygenRX-Y-Z.tar.gz | tar -xvf -

    Usually this is done in an EPICS 'support/delaygen' directory. It will produce a subdirectory X-Y-Z, where X,Y,Z represent the distribution version (i.e. 1-0-2).

    delaygen/X-Y-Z
  2. Edit the configure/RELEASE file of the application that will use delaygen to point to this directory.

  3. Edit delaygen's configure/RELEASE file and set the paths to your installation of EPICS base and other synApps modules.

  4. CD to X-Y-Z and enter make build the delaygen library and sample application.

  5. Please email  Dohn Arms  so that a record can be kept of which sites are using this software.
