Real-time 40-meter analysis

The analysis tools in the GRASP package can be used to analyze data in real-time, as it is recorded by the DAQ system. This facility is primarily for the use of experimenters working in the Caltech 40-meter lab. and will probably not be of use to anyone outside of that group.

In order to use the GRASP tools in real time, one needs to link to a set of EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System) libraries, that are not otherwise needed. These permit the GRASP code to interrogate the EPICS system to find out the names and locations of the most-recently written FRAMES of data.
