    56'''k2ew:''' Communicates with the K2 data logger from Kinemetrics. Uses TCP or COM port for communication on WindowsNT, TCP or TTY (serial) comms on Unix. See src/data/sources/k2ew/Doc for documentation.

    3232 
    3333'''Libsrc Changes:''' 
     
    7575'''ws_clientII libsrc routines:''' wsSearchSCN claimed to return the first menu with a matching SCN; it actually returned the last menu that matched. This has been fixed. Also, if the menup argument to wsSearchSCN is non-NULL, the search will start with the next menu after *menup; otherwise the search will start with menu_queue->head. Finally, wsGetTraceAscii now takes advantage of this change to wsSearchSCN: if the server returns with a flag (request in gap or outside of tank), another server in the menu queue will be tried. This feature probably should be added to wsGetTraceAscii. Even better, the wave_server should be able to return a complete index list so that traces can be pieced together from several servers if the servers are missing different portions of the trace.

    77 '''Transport Changes:''' 
     77=== Transport Changes === 
    7878 
    7979'''tport_putmsg''' assigns and tracks the sequence numbers for each logo. tport_putmsg has a limit to the number of different logos for which it can keep track of sequences numbers (NTRACK_PUT). This has been increased from 20 to 200. The number of logos for which tport_getmsg and toport_copyfrom can track sequence numbers has been increased from 50 to 500. 
    8080 
    81 '''Module Changes:''' 
     81=== Module Changes === 
    8282 
    8383'''gaplist:''' Added MyModuleId command to allow module id to be configured. Added logging and "unerror" msg to statmgr when data is received from a previously dead channel. 
     
    131131'''hyp2000:''' Grabbed the latest source code from Fred Klein on 9/11/00. Contains a new command "DUG" which allows one to control which component codes will use gain corrections in the duration magnitude calculation. Also includes fixes to some obscure bugs, probably never seen in normal Earthworm use of hyp2000. 
    132132 
    133 '''DBMS RELATED MODULES''' 
     133== DBMS RELATED MODULES == 
    134134 
    135135'''stalist_hinv2ora:''' fixed a bug which caused elevations over 1000 meters to be inserted incorrectly. 
     
    139139'''archive:''' Added another command line option NOSAVE to allow quick deletion of trace from the DB without saving it. Also, made it so that diagnostic error is printed to the stderr as well as the log file when the Debug flag is set.

    144  
    145 '''Module Name Length:''' The limit for module name length has been increased from 20 to 32 characters.

     143'''Module Name Length: The limit for module name length has been increased from 20 to 32 characters.''' 
    146144 
    147145'''gaplist.d:''' New optional command "MyModuleId". 
     
    163161'''All config files:''' now logging to standard error and standard output may be turned off by setting the LogSwitch (or similar name) to 2. 
    164162 
    165 '''DBMS/WEB RELATED CONFIGURATION FILES:''' 
     163== DBMS/WEB RELATED CONFIGURATION FILES == 
    166164 
    167165'''getlist:''' Added WebHost option -- should be set to the name of the machine which holds up the web pages and where the web administrator webmaster is located. 
     
    171169'''ora2rsec_gif:''' Added WebHost option -- should be set to the name of the machine which holds up the web pages and where the web administrator webmaster is located.

    173 '''KNOWN BUGS or DEFICIENCIES:''' 
     171== KNOWN BUGS or DEFICIENCIES == 
    174172 
    175173'''Window NT:''' In Windows NT, the time resolution of sleep_ew() is about 16 msec (one clock tick). On Solaris, the resolution is about 10 msec. This is a problem for ringtocoax, since packet delays need to be set to a few milliseconds. 
     
    198196If necessary, the stranded shared memory and semaphores may be cleaned up with the ipcrc command; must be run as root; see the man page. This problem only exists on Solaris/Unix, not on WindowsNT. 
    199197 
    200 '''NUMBER OF RINGS LIMITED ON SOLARIS:''' 
     198== NUMBER OF RINGS LIMITED ON SOLARIS == 
    201199 
    202200Under Solaris 2.6 (and probably other versions as well), the maximum number of shared memory segments is six. This means that on an out-of-the-box machine you can only configure six rings. If you try to configure more than that, you will see a cryptic message from tport_create about too many open files. The fix to this problem is to add the following lines to the /etc/system file, and then reboot the system.
