CRaTER -- CNoise

NAME

sf_log, sf_noise -- Common High Level CRaTER Functional Test Utilities

    sf_facility - displays facility housekeeping in a small window
    sf_log     -- runs the CArchive script in a small window
    sf_noise   -- runs the CStatistics script in a small window

USAGE

    sf_facility | sf_log | sf_noise [args]

FLAGS

    none; see DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

This program resides in the directory as sf_noise; all other program names are simply aliases.

These wrapper programs are provided primarily for use with the Short Form and Long Form Functional tests; their default behavior is keyed to those uses. If you insist on providing arguments, they will be passed on blindly to the underlying programs, CComment for sf_facility, CArchive for sf_log and CStatistics for sf_noise. You should read those man pages for further information.

ENVIRONMENT

    perl5.6       Minimum version of Perl interpreter required
    CRATERTOOLS   Environment variable containing path to CRaTER utilities
    CRATER_GSE    Environment variable containing EGSE machine name

BUGS

This script has the property that the termination of the underlying program (e.g.: CArchive) also closes the X window. If things are proceeding normally, that is a good thing. If the underlying program generates an error and exits, however, the user will never see the error message in the quickly closing window.
