#emc | Logs for 2006-07-11

[00:49:42] <jepler> emc2 is getting faster! by immediately closing the axis window when it appears, it only takes 5 seconds wall time to run: ./scripts/emc configs/sim/axis.ini
[00:50:23] <jepler> it takes only about 2 seconds for the axis window to appear
[00:53:52] <anonimasu> nice
[00:53:55] <CIA-9> 03jepler 07HEAD * 10axis/scripts/axis.py: fix code to dismiss popimage
[00:58:16] <cradek> that's great - I sure have waited for that a few times in my life so far.
[01:07:19] <jepler> starting "io" takes a second
[01:07:42] <jepler> this line: $HALCMD loadusr -Wn iocontrol $EMC2_BIN_DIR/$EMCIO -ini $INIFILE
[01:08:01] <jepler> that's the longest single thing, out of a 2.4 second run of a user interface that just exits
[01:24:23] <CIA-9> 03jepler 07HEAD * 10emc2/scripts/emc.in: wait .1 second instead of 1 second when killing things
[01:25:29] <CIA-9> 03jepler 07HEAD * 10emc2/src/emc/iotask/ioControl.cc:
[01:25:29] <CIA-9> do the hal setup first. trims a half second off startup time. re-organize
[01:25:29] <CIA-9> some other code so that hal_exit will be called.
[01:26:12] <jepler> now 2.5 seconds to run emc2, showing but immediately exiting the AXIS gui (hot disk cache)
[01:32:21] <jepler> + ++ find /usr/realtime-2.6.12-magma/modules -name rtai_hal.ko
[01:32:32] <jepler> you've got to be kidding me!
[01:33:46] <dmessier> back in ontariariooooo...
[02:23:38] <A-L-P-H-A> 'ight... time to get back into C programming.
[02:23:39] <A-L-P-H-A> or C++
[02:23:40] <A-L-P-H-A> whichever.
[02:23:44] <A-L-P-H-A> can't decide yet.
[02:25:34] <JymmmEMC> C? you were just doin php ?
[02:25:42] <A-L-P-H-A> yeah.
[02:25:48] <A-L-P-H-A> I was just doing php
[02:26:11] <A-L-P-H-A> since I have decent privledges on the server, I can compile my own CGI apps.
[02:26:14] <A-L-P-H-A> which I'm doing.
[02:26:33] <JymmmEMC> ah... apt-get install php =)
[03:46:01] <fenn> python
[04:26:42] <JymmmEMC> I don't know python (yet), just php.
[04:32:34] <A-L-P-H-A> JymmmEMC, I have WAMP (as opposed to LAMP) setup.

[06:19:39] <^Eugenics> Anyone have a good idea how to send a pallet from UK to Frnace (and the pallet needs to be collected)?
[07:16:09] <robin_sz> ^Eugenics, use palletline, www.palletline.co.uk
[07:20:11] <alex_joni> morning robin
[07:37:39] <^Eugenics> Howdy folks; I check it out robin_sz! Thanks for the tip.
[09:41:45] <^Eugenics> Hi EvertL, long time no see
[09:42:01] <^Eugenics> Hows your impementation going?
[10:57:10] <giacus> hello
[10:57:19] <alex_joni> hi
[10:57:28] <giacus> hi alex_joni
[10:58:10] <giacus> darn weather, storm in the air again :(
[11:00:31] <giacus> bah.. going for the daugther birthday :))
[11:00:36] <giacus> later
[11:00:57] <anonimasu> :)
[11:01:23] <^Eugenics> giacus: http://www.eurometeo.com/english/meteomar/id_ml
[11:01:29] <^Eugenics> giacus: have fun
[11:01:59] <giacus> should be time for a bit of sun !

[11:02:34] <giacus> later
[11:02:36] <giacus> :D
[11:42:55] <EvertL> hi ^Eugenics
[11:43:08] <EvertL> work's going well, thanks for asking
[11:43:32] <EvertL> we now have a system with two EMC2's coupled in both user space and real-time
[11:44:06] <EvertL> one user interface from which two machines can be controlled
[11:44:12] <EvertL> and visualized
[11:44:44] <EvertL> real-time communication is going trough a parallel port for the moment
[11:45:44] <EvertL> we still need to test the speed under harder conditions
[11:46:01] <EvertL> if it turns out the parport is not good enough we might consider usb
[11:47:53] <alex_joni> usb will be slower ;)
[11:48:38] <EvertL> you think so? with usb we can send more data at once, our parport can only handle one byte at a time
[11:49:08] <alex_joni> right, but USB can only send once every few mseconds
[11:49:34] <EvertL> really, well that needs some consideration then :)
[11:50:31] <alex_joni> USB is good for high throuput
[11:50:36] <alex_joni> but it sucks at low latency
[11:50:43] <alex_joni> you'd better consider RT-ethernet
[11:50:50] <alex_joni> which has both ;)
[11:52:24] <EvertL> is that some special type of ethernet?
[11:53:18] <EvertL> google tells me interesting stuff
[11:53:27] <EvertL> we'll definately look at it
[12:36:08] <skunkworks> giacus: congrats on the football team (soccer ;)0
[13:38:49] <giacus> skunkworks: thanks! this world cup is italian, but we are all you !
