keyword=Helicity (setup) info comm to VME
The setup parameters of the Helicity Timing Board are now
communicated via TCP/IP to the VME crate for the Trig. Super.
This will aid the scaler software in figuring out if there is
a problem or not. I think the only "problem" is if the Pattern
is not Quartet. In principle this is fixable too; all software
that looks at helicity should adjust itself automatically to
the setup parameters.
At the moment, the info is printed every 30 sec at the vxWorks
login. You may see a warning like this:
(non-fatal) Helicity warning: frequency is not 1 kHz
it is 29 Hz
The frequency shouldn't be a problem.
Things affected (which should cause no harm) are :
Added "gethel" to ~/scripts/getrininfo_bgr on a-onl.
Added a line to kill gethel in end_clean.
Download the sgethel server in ~/vxworks/vme_left.boot
