Next: Overview Up: Hartebeesthoek 26m New Computer Previous: Hartebeesthoek 26m New Computer


The Hartebeesthoek 26m telescope computer control system is presently being redesigned and rebuilt - the so-called New Control Computer System (NCCS). In this process a lot of new code will developed and old code from the previous control system ported to the new operating system which has been chosen for the NCCS - Linux. This document makes a proposal of how to develop code under Linux and how to organise it. The proposals presented here apply equally to analysis programs and control programs.
