Thanks for the clarification Michael.

We are using the PSI branch of mrfioc2 (due to our use of the MRF VME-300 series boards), so I guess this is why we don't see the change to INST_IO.

This brings up the point discussed at the timing workshop of ICALEPCS 2017 in Barcelona about efforts to merge the PSI and 'vanilla' branches of mrfioc2.  Has any progress been made on this, or is this unlikely to happen in the (nearish) future?

Thanks,

Graham

Yes, back in 2015 as part of my work on linking and locksets the parser was made stricter.
The numbers became non-optional, were required to be decimal.  This was released in
3.16.0.1 (in 2016).

Also on the subject of updates.  Around the same time I switched mrfioc2 from VME_IO
links to INST_IO.
