TCL/TK GUI program
I have taken the plunge into Linux, out of the windows world. I was working on a Windows 95/98/NT GUI program for the Mark IV camera, but am starting to learn that Linux is a lot better. I am learning now TCL/TK, a scripting language that runs on both windows and linux, but will probably continue on both versions.
I have this summer to try to get a MarkIV GUI program running, hopefully this time I can get something out on the CVS.
Chris, I have bought a book on Linux programming and am starting to understand what you have been telling me all along. Sorry to be so slow!
Please tell me if the following is correct, anyone:
-The GUI acts as a client for the MarkIV data server
running Chris's program, and uses sockets to do this.
The user can either manually command the Mark IV
server via the GUI form boxes, or use a script.
-The GUI takes the images, processes them with the
dark and flat, and adds header info to create FITS
-The GUI then can run starlist processing, then takes
the data in the format of list and combines it with
the main SQL database (Postgres?)
-Other functions include the display of sensor data,
such as CCD temp, VCO, etc... Some have asked for a
version where data is displayed in a strip chart,
which I am planning on incorporating.
