Record Reference Documentation

The documentation below for the record types and menus included with Base was converted from the old EPICS Wiki pages and updated. This list only includes the record types supplied with Base. The first two links below are to an external website where these original reference chapters are now being published.

Corrections and Updates

Corrections to these documents can be submitted as patch files to the EPICS core developers, or as merge requests or pull requests to the 7.0 branch of Base. The document sources can be found in the modules/database/src/std/rec and modules/database/src/ioc/db directories in files with extension .dbd.pod. The documentation source format is a combination of the EPICS DBD file format with an extended version of Perl's POD (plain old documentation); run perldoc pod for details of POD.
