EPICS : a retrospective on porting iocCore to multiple operating systems.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An important component of EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) is iocCore, which is the core software in the IOC (input/output controller) front-end processors. At ICALEPCS 1999 a paper was presented describing plans to port iocCore to multiple operating systems. At that time iocCore only supported vxWorks, but now it also supports RTEMS, Solaris, Linux, and WinNT. This paper describes some key features of how iocCore supports multiple operating systems.
