TAlh - a Qt-based Alh-compatible Alarm Handler for EPICS

Copyright (c) TRIUMF, 2016 ....

Author: R.Keitel


TAlh was created as a replacement for the Motif-based EPICS Alh utility at TRIUMF.

The development road map envisages the following steps:
  1. Stand-alone application which is compatible with Alh for the Alh functionality used at TRIUMF.
  2. Separation into an Alarm Handler GUI application and and Alarm server. Many GUI applications allowed to connect to one Alarm server.
  3. Full compatibility with Alh (depending on interest from the EPICS collaboration.)
