  • v7.4

    v6 v7  
    8080 * Stop and restart requests are now run in independent threads, so startstop will still be responsive to further requests no matter how long the stopping and/or restarting takes 
    8181 * Scott Hunter 12/13/2009 
     82 
    8283 * If there is a problem encountered when reconfiguring, instead of aborting, startstop now proceeds as if no such request had been made. 
    8384 * Scott Hunter 12/13/2009 
     85 
    8486 * Removed corruption of PATH environment variable & fixed display of paths in status 
    8587 * Scott Hunter 01/11/2010 
     88 
    8689 * Eliminated potential hang of status by having it read process info using non-blocking reads 
    8790 * Scott Hunter 02/12/2010 
     91 
    8892 * Should now reliably create its logfile 
    8993 * Scott Hunter 03/01/2010 
     94 
    9095 * Smarter display of arguments in Unix Status display (i.e. dropping trailing .d if that is all that makes line too long; truncating last argument from front, replacing dropped chars with <; use trailing > to indicate 1 or more trailing arguments not displayed)   
    9196 * Also added optional .d command, maxStatusLineLen. 
    9297 * Scott Hunter 03/04/2010 
     98 
    9399 * Consolidated unix code for stopping modules; will first try setting a flag for the module to self-terminate, then try sending a terminate signal (which modules can be written to ignore); finally, if new optional .d command !HardKillDelay is non-0, will use a kill signal which CAN'T be ignored. 
    94100 * Scott Hunter 03/10/2010 
     101 
    95102 * More consistent Status display between Windows & Unix; in particular, showing arguments to the right.  Also reports modules that did not properly start in both as !NoExec  
    96103 * Scott Hunter 03/25/2010 
     104 
    97105 * Better enforcement of column widths in status; allow process name to be truncated as necessary 
    98106 * Scott Hunter 04/05/2010

    112120=== carlsubtrig === 
    113  * Allowed a way to point to the trig_id.d file instead of having it in a stock location: !TrigIdFilename is the new directive. If this is used, the line  
    114 @trig_id.d should be commented out from the .d file  
     121 * Allowed a way to point to the trig_id.d file instead of having it in a stock location: !TrigIdFilename is the new directive. If this is used, the line @trig_id.d should be commented out from the .d file  
    115122 * Paul Friberg 2009/08/28

    132139 * Automatic restarts of adsend (using the "restartMe" line in the descriptor file) can cause an NT system to hang. Therefore, you should never use the autorestart feature with adsend, but you should bring down the entire Earthworm system if adsend needs to be restarted. LDD 5/31/2000 Comments added to adsend.desc, but leave this warning here!

    135 libsrc/utils/site.c: The strings used for station, channel and network are required to be fixed length with trailing spaces added to short names. If

     142 * The strings used for station, channel and network are required to be fixed length with trailing spaces added to short names. If 
    136143the strings given to site_index do not have these trailing blanks, SCN names will not match. This is not documented anywhere.  PNL 10/15/00
