Dear all,

We are considering the use of real-time Linux (RTL or RTAI) as the 
environment for iocCore in the upcoming Magdalena Ridge Observatory optical 
interferometer project.

Anyone else thinking about similar lines?

Aloha,

Subject:	iocCore port

Work on porting iocCore to other operating systems besides vxWorks is
progressing.

The following has been accomplised

Almost all of base except Channel Access, the sequencer, and hardware 
support
has been changed to use the new osi routines rather than vxWorks specific 
calls.
I have not touched Channel Access becuse this needs help from Jeff Hill. 
William
Lupton is already working on a version of the sequencer that is independent 
of
vxWorks. The hardware dependent code will be unbundled from base.

Janet Anderson has modified the make system so that it works for non 
vxWorks IOC
targets. The new system is actually easier than the old.

Using the new osi independent code the example application generated by
makeBaseApp has been run successfully. This was a major milestone.

A document describing the iocCore port is attached. Note that to port to 
other
systems only the libraries osiSem and osiThread need to be implemented. It
should be possible to implement these using posix calls. If this is done we
should be able to run iocCore on many platforms.
