    232232The [wiki:Earthworm Earthworm] release currently includes over 100 modules. However, several key modules are discussed below: 
    233233 
    234 * Import/Export 
     234* Import / Export 
    235235 
    236236These modules perform long-distance message exchange between [wiki:Earthworm Earthworm] systems. The Import (e.g., [wiki:import_generic import_generic]) module is supplied with the IP address and port of the Export it is to accept connections from. When it senses a connect request, it connects, and places all incoming messages on it's specified output message ring. The 'shipping label' of the message is that of the incoming message. It exchanges predetermined heartbeat texts with it's Import at specified rates. If the incoming heartbeat text does not match the specification in its configuration file, it closes the connection. If the heartbeat from its Import does not arrive on time, it re-initialized the connection.
