CapFast Tools

These tools are for users of the CapFast schematic design tool. There is currently no maintainer for this software, although several people have made changes to fix e2db bugs - search tech-talk to find these patches. Another alternative package for converting CapFast schematics directly into to database files was the SCH2DB converter from BESSY, although this is no longer available online.

New EPICS sites are advised that the Visual Database Configuration Tool is capable of hierarchical database design and a much better way to create databases graphically.
