epics Invocation Scheme

The setup script epics relies on other scripts in the EPICS versions home directories. Here you can see how those files are invoked:
  • Typically most of those files are just links to other places, except for myepicslogin.sh.
    Based on the basic setup (see below) an adminstrator can add / modify / tweak at this recommended place.

  . epics [ -Options ] [ <version> ]
  general login script, able to call several EPICS installations
   
  1. optional: <before script>
  source <before script>
  (set by environment variable: EPICS_LOCAL_BEFORE_SCRIPT, or overwritten by option -B <Path><bash script> )
   
  2. <loginScript> "myepicslogin.sh"
  source <loginScript>
  local, i.e. to the single EPICS installation, login script
  default :
  "<epicsHome>/<epicsDirPrefix><version>/myepicslogin.sh"
  overwritten by environment variable:
  EPICS_LOCAL_LOGIN_SCRIPT
  overwritten by option :
  -L <Path><bash script>
   
  2.1. optional <other local pre scripts> within <loginScript>:
  source <other local pre scripts>
   
  2.2. epicslogin.sh :
  source <epicsHome>/<epicsDirPrefix><version>/epicslogin.sh
  epicslogin.sh :
  usually a (soft) link to ${MY_ALL_EPICS_TOP_DIR}/bin
  or to ${GSI_EPICS_INSTALLATIONS_TOP_DIR}/bin
   
  2.2.1 source <epicsHome>/<epicsDirPrefix><version>/epicslogin.sh
  in case it has been extended/changed to be wrapper this is a symbolic link to
  $EPICS_HOME/base-<version>/startup/Site.profile.wrapper calling itself:
   
  2.2.1.1 source $EPICS_HOME/base-<version>/startup/Site.profile.pre
  most of the local default definitions before calling the former, but modified Site.profile
   
  2.2.1.2 source $EPICS_HOME/base-<version>/startup/Site.profile.main
  former Site.profile modified to be able to be more verbose
   
  2.2.1.3 source $EPICS_HOME/base-<version>/startup/Site.profile.post
  post jobs after calling Site.profile.main
   
  2.3. optional: source <other local scripts, e.g. setting of PATHs, init of cross-compilers>
   
  3. optional: source <after script>
  (set by environment variable: EPICS_LOCAL_AFTER_SCRIPT, or overwritten by option -A <Path><bash script> )
