SLAC is consolidating its two control rooms by utilizing existing control computers in each, connected by a communications link. Except for video signals, all of the controls and data of one (Central Control Room) will be sent to the operators in the other (beam switchyard control room) using this system. The paper is concerned with the software aspects of(More)
The new computer control system software for SPEAR is presented BS a transjer from the PEP system. Features of the iarget ring (SPEAR) _such..as symmetries, magnet groupings, etc., ar& all-contained in a design file which ls read by both people and computer. People use it as documentation; a it rogram reads it to generate the database structure, which(More)
This paper describes an operational small computer multiprogramming system developed for the control of the Stanford Two Mile Linear Accelerator (SLAC). The system has many features of larger systems such as dynamic memory allocation and interprocess control, but does not have to handle typical batch type jobs which need large arrays and many other system(More)
Many computer programs and a variety of models exist for the design of accelerator lattices and the correction of errors. Many physicists contributed to this work by developing codes to suit a variety of machines. At present, we are integrating some of these codes into a unified framework to design and control any type of machine. We will refer to this(More)
