Abstract content

caputRecorder supports the recording and playback of sequences of caputs. It records each caput as a python command, and a sequence of caputs as a python function (users call this a "macro"). caputRecorder can also serve as a simple user interface for delivering canned python functions to end users. caputRecorder communicates with users via an EPICS database, so it allows any EPICS record or channel-access client to record and run python functions, and to wait for them to complete.
