The following epics-related classes are not part of Epics namespace:

Class EpicsPvHeader

Public attributes:

   short int iPvId              //  process variable ID
   short int iDbrType           //  Epics Data Type
   short int iNumElements       //  Size of PV Array

Public Member Functions:

    int printPv() const;

Public Member Functions:

    static void* operator new(size_t size, char* p)     { return p; }

Pds::Epics Namespace Reference.

EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) is used for hardware control and readout of hardware status, values etc. These are called process variables (PV). Pdsdata contains a package that holds the epics classes needed to read the process variables from the xtc file. This is not even a complete documentation of these classes, as it would be unneccesarily detailed. Here we aim just to include the main ingredients and what the user need to know to extract the data.

The following classes, typedefs and variables are part of Epics namespace:
