Abstract: The CAMAC library is an implementation, rather than a
specification. It provides a system of ready-made
computer-independent software modules which can be
referenced by a higher level of programming (i.e. by
the application programs).
Much beyond IML or handlers for specific CAMAC systems,
the CAMAC-Support Library for Industrial Systems
includes test programs, adaptor programs, and general
utility programs. It may be considered analogous to the
various instrumentation modules, test equipment, and
highway adaptors which support CAMAC systems from a
hardware standpoint. The library provides similar
support in a software structure.
Written in standard FORTRAN (ANSI X3.9-1966 or ISO Full
FORTRAN R/539-1972), the main library includes about
4000 source records in its current release. It is
organized into various sub-libraries. A separate file
name is suggested for each main program (e.g., a utility
program) while related subprograms (i.e., functions and
subroutines) are grouped with a file name suggested for
each group.
Only partial documentation is offered by DECUS. Users
who request software from DECUS should contact the
author for current information and documentation.
