9EWQuakeAlert
10A Java 1.6 GUI that receives HYP2000ARC messages from import and creates alert
11emails and SMS (sms using clickatel interface) with information about the
12event. In addition to the origin info, it sends emails with a google map of
13the location and a .png display of the waveforms that had picks.

17cont_trig
18This module sends regularly trig2k messages in order for a listening trig2disk
19to produce continuous data archiving. It can replace the contrecord Perl and modules
20of GlowWorm package (used until v6.3).
21Based on carlsubtrig module.
22Tested under Linux CentOS.
23Jean-Marie Saurel 03/12/2010
24
25trig2arc
26This module converts trig2k messages into hyp2000_arc messages.
27Only the stations that has been trigged are send in the output.
28P arrival time is the trigger time for each station, and the weight is 4.
29Tested under Linux CentOS.
30Jean-Marie Saurel 03/12/2010
31
32seisan_report
33This module is contributed from Richard Luckette and Doug Scott of the BGS
34and it takes an HYPO2000ARC message and converts it to SEISAN event format.
35Paul Friberg 12/07/2010
36
37hyp71_mgr
38This module allows to use Hypo71 at the end of the megamodule instead of hyp2000.
39The input/output is the same as hyp2000_mgr module.
40It allors also to compute and integrate local magnitude using standalone mode
41of localmag.
42Tested under several Linux flavours.

45ewspectra
46This module takes data from one or more waveservers, computes and processes
47their spectra; results can be written either to a file or a ring.  Processing
48includes tapering, smoothing, filtering, and peak identification.  Data
49acqusition can be initiated from the config file or from a message read from a
50specified ring (see 'compute_spectra').
51Scott Hunter 04/26/2011
52
53compute_spectra
54This module posts a message that, when read by ewspectra, begins processing data
55starting at the specified date/time.
56Scott Hunter 04/26/2011
57
58sniffspectra
59This module is a sniffwave for spectra messages, as written by ewspectra.  Results
60can be directed to stdout or to a different file for each message "sniffed", in
61a specified directory.
62Scott Hunter 04/26/2011
63
64ewthresh
65This module monitors a ring for TRACEBUF2X messages and generates an alarm message
66when a SCNL-specific threshold is exceeded.

69MODIFICATIONS/BUG FIXES TO EXISTING MODULES:
70********************************************
71tankplayer
72Fixed a bug where no heartbeats were issued if the Directory Scanning mode was
73used to playback data.
74Paul Friberg 04/29/2011
75
76eqassemble
77modified main tport_getmsg loop such that messages received with return codes
78GET_OK, GET_MISS, and GET_NOTRACK are all processed.  Previously, only msgs
79returned with GET_OK were processed. Msgs with GET_MISS and GET_NOTRACK returns
80were essentially ignored; only the return code was logged.
81Lynn Dietz 04/01/2011
82
83nmxptool
84updated nmxptool to version 2.0.0
85Matteo Quintiliani 01/24/2011
86
87sniffwave
88added in tracebuf2.1 detection capability display (to show a conversion factor instead
89of data quality flags). This is fully backward compatible with all prior
90versions.
91Kevin Frechette 01/12/2011
92
93localmag
94Fixed a case where if multiple wave_serverV's were listed, only the first one
95was ever polled for data (the rest were marked as duplicates).
96Paul Friberg 01/12/2011
97
98export_generic
99any linux module using PTHREAD_STACK set to 8192 can possibly segfault on
10064-bit linux (unreliably). The thread stack size was increased to 81920
101for Linux #ifdefined statement and all problems went away. This was not
102tested on Solaris or Windows or Mac OS X.
103Paul Friberg 12/02/2010
104
105tankplayer tools, wave_probe, dumpwave, cleandir, glass, startstopservice
106On Windows, added kom.obj to link so that the new kom dependency to logit
107is taken into account.
108Stefan Lisowski 11/11/2010
109
110tankplayer tools, ew2mseed, dumpwave, getmenu
111On Solaris and Unix makefiles, added kom.o to link so that the new kom
112dependency to logit is taken into account.
113Matteo Quintiliani 11/4/2010
114
115menlo_report
116Added parameter EnableLongFileName in the configuration file of menlo_report.
117It enables writing arc/sum files with format DATETIME_ID_VER.SUFFIX
118(i.e. 201011040932_0000097658_2.arc)
119Matteo Quintiliani 11/4/2010
120
121eqcoda
122Increased buffer size to 512 bytes for reading a line from the station file.
123Same behaviour of pick_ew.
124Matteo Quintiliani 8/25/2010
125
126sniffwave
127Fixed a misleading print statement when WaveMsg2MakeLocal() failed on a SCNL, it
128showed possible spaces in the SCNL that were not really there.
129Paul Friberg 8/19/2010
130
131fir
132Added QueueSize optional parameter to increase the default from 100
133Added SleepMilliSeconds optional parameter to decrease the default from 500ms
134Paul Friberg 8/18/2010
135
136statmgr
137*Bugfix You can now comment out the line that includes an email addres
138        so nobody gets emailed by statmgr, and you don't need to put a
139        fake email address in to get statmgr to start. This is the
140        behavior that is desccribed in the config file. Fix by Paul Friberg
141        201006
142
143sniffwave
144- Removed hundredths of second from values of latency.
145- Changed the SCNL line output format in order to increase the readability.
146  Now each field falls nearly at same column.
147- Quality fields are now displayed in hexadecimal.
148  Before non-ASCII characters were improperly printed to the terminal.
149- Distinguished output for gaps and overlaps.
150Matteo Quintiliani 6/22/2010
151
152ew2mseed
153Removed -D_SPARC from CFLAGS line of makefile.sol. This flag prevented
154proper byte-swapping on Solaris for little-endian (Intel) platform.
155Ilya Dricker 5/05/2010
156
157ew2mseed
158*Bugfix to prevent overflow in printing of location code
159*Fixed a condition of a bogus 'FULLY in THE GAP' return from waverserver.
160 Now if waverserver insists that the request is fully in the gap, but the
161 requested startTime is more than 12 hours AFTER the current time, we redefine
162 the waveServer FLAG is 'REQUEST-AFTER-THE-TANK'
163Ilya Dricker 5/19/2010
164
165trig2disk
166Postproc external script is now launched with tow arguments :
167date (YYYYMMDD) and time (HHMM) of the processed event.

171CHANGES TO CONFIGURATION FILES and DESCRIPTOR FILES:
172****************************************************
173
174Environment Variable expansion in .d files
175Added file environment/earthworm_commonvars.d for declaring "Earthworm Common Variables"
176It is now possible to declare variables like ${...} within .d configuration files
