6NEW MODULES:
7***********
8
9nll_mgr
10This is a module to do for NonLinLoc what hyp2000_mgr does for hypoinverse. It
11basically runs NonLinLoc and converts the input and output so that it matches
12what hyp2000 does so that downstream programs can get a new earthquake solution.
13This uses Anthony Lomax's NonLinLoc locator program found here:
14        http://alomax.free.fr/nlloc/
15The nll_mgr was contributed by INGV but written by Anthony. Formerly this was in
16the Contrib bundle, but it is in use in a few places as a production module.
17NOTE that we are also including NonLinLoc with each EW release as a convenience,
18but if you need the latest, go to Anthony's web site link above.

21EWQuakeAlert
22A Java 1.6 GUI that receives HYP2000ARC messages from import and creates alert
23emails and SMS (sms using clickatel interface) with information about the
24event. In addition to the origin info, it sends emails with a google map of
25the location and a .png display of the waveforms that had picks.

29cont_trig
30This module sends regularly trig2k messages in order for a listening trig2disk
31to produce continuous data archiving. It can replace the contrecord Perl and modules
32of GlowWorm package (used until v6.3).
33Based on carlsubtrig module.
34Tested under Linux CentOS.
35Jean-Marie Saurel 03/12/2010
36
37trig2arc
38This module converts trig2k messages into hyp2000_arc messages.
39Only the stations that has been trigged are send in the output.
40P arrival time is the trigger time for each station, and the weight is 4.
41Tested under Linux CentOS.
42Jean-Marie Saurel 03/12/2010
43
44seisan_report
45This module is contributed from Richard Luckette and Doug Scott of the BGS
46and it takes an HYPO2000ARC message and converts it to SEISAN event format.
47Paul Friberg 12/07/2010
48
49hyp71_mgr
50This module allows to use Hypo71 at the end of the megamodule instead of hyp2000.
51The input/output is the same as hyp2000_mgr module.
52It allors also to compute and integrate local magnitude using standalone mode
53of localmag.
54Tested under several Linux flavours.
55Jean-Marie Saurel 10/12/2010
56
57ewspectra
58This module takes data from one or more waveservers, computes and processes
59their spectra; results can be written either to a file or a ring.  Processing
60includes tapering, smoothing, filtering, and peak identification.  Data
61acqusition can be initiated from the config file or from a message read from a
62specified ring (see 'compute_spectra').
63Scott Hunter 04/26/2011
64
65compute_spectra
66This module posts a message that, when read by ewspectra, begins processing data
67starting at the specified date/time.  (Deprecated w/ the creation of
68activate_module)
69Scott Hunter 04/26/2011
70
71sniffspectra
72This module is a sniffwave for spectra messages, as written by ewspectra.  Results
73can be directed to stdout or to a different file for each message "sniffed", in
74a specified directory.
75Scott Hunter 04/26/2011
76
77ewthresh
78This module monitors a ring for TRACEBUF2X messages and generates an alarm message
79when a SCNL-specific threshold is exceeded.
80Scott Hunter 04/26/2011
81
82activate_module
83This module puts an ACTIVATE_MODULE message in the specified ring, the body of
84which starts with the module ID of the specified target module, followed by the
85remaining command-line arguments.

88MODIFICATIONS/BUG FIXES TO EXISTING MODULES:
89********************************************
90tankplayer
91Fixed a bug where no heartbeats were issued if the Directory Scanning mode was
92used to playback data.
93Paul Friberg 04/29/2011
94
95eqassemble
96modified main tport_getmsg loop such that messages received with return codes
97GET_OK, GET_MISS, and GET_NOTRACK are all processed.  Previously, only msgs
98returned with GET_OK were processed. Msgs with GET_MISS and GET_NOTRACK returns
99were essentially ignored; only the return code was logged.
100Lynn Dietz 04/01/2011
101
102nmxptool
103updated nmxptool to version 2.0.0
104Matteo Quintiliani 01/24/2011
105
106sniffwave
107added in tracebuf2.1 detection capability display (to show a conversion factor instead
108of data quality flags). This is fully backward compatible with all prior
109versions.
110Kevin Frechette 01/12/2011
111
112localmag
113Fixed a case where if multiple wave_serverV's were listed, only the first one
114was ever polled for data (the rest were marked as duplicates).
115Paul Friberg 01/12/2011
116
117export_generic
118any linux module using PTHREAD_STACK set to 8192 can possibly segfault on
11964-bit linux (unreliably). The thread stack size was increased to 81920
120for Linux #ifdefined statement and all problems went away. This was not
121tested on Solaris or Windows or Mac OS X.
122Paul Friberg 12/02/2010
123
124tankplayer tools, wave_probe, dumpwave, cleandir, glass, startstopservice
125On Windows, added kom.obj to link so that the new kom dependency to logit
126is taken into account.
127Stefan Lisowski 11/11/2010
128
129tankplayer tools, ew2mseed, dumpwave, getmenu
130On Solaris and Unix makefiles, added kom.o to link so that the new kom
131dependency to logit is taken into account.
132Matteo Quintiliani 11/4/2010
133
134menlo_report
135Added parameter EnableLongFileName in the configuration file of menlo_report.
136It enables writing arc/sum files with format DATETIME_ID_VER.SUFFIX
137(i.e. 201011040932_0000097658_2.arc)
138Matteo Quintiliani 11/4/2010
139
140eqcoda
141Increased buffer size to 512 bytes for reading a line from the station file.
142Same behaviour of pick_ew.
143Matteo Quintiliani 8/25/2010
144
145sniffwave
146Fixed a misleading print statement when WaveMsg2MakeLocal() failed on a SCNL, it
147showed possible spaces in the SCNL that were not really there.
148Paul Friberg 8/19/2010
149
150fir
151Added QueueSize optional parameter to increase the default from 100
152Added SleepMilliSeconds optional parameter to decrease the default from 500ms
153Paul Friberg 8/18/2010
154
155statmgr
156*Bugfix You can now comment out the line that includes an email addres
157        so nobody gets emailed by statmgr, and you don't need to put a
158        fake email address in to get statmgr to start. This is the
159        behavior that is desccribed in the config file. Fix by Paul Friberg
160        201006
161
162sniffwave
163- Removed hundredths of second from values of latency.
164- Changed the SCNL line output format in order to increase the readability.
165  Now each field falls nearly at same column.
166- Quality fields are now displayed in hexadecimal.
167  Before non-ASCII characters were improperly printed to the terminal.
168- Distinguished output for gaps and overlaps.
169Matteo Quintiliani 6/22/2010
170
171ew2mseed
172Removed -D_SPARC from CFLAGS line of makefile.sol. This flag prevented
173proper byte-swapping on Solaris for little-endian (Intel) platform.
174Ilya Dricker 5/05/2010
175
176ew2mseed
177*Bugfix to prevent overflow in printing of location code
178*Fixed a condition of a bogus 'FULLY in THE GAP' return from waverserver.
179 Now if waverserver insists that the request is fully in the gap, but the
180 requested startTime is more than 12 hours AFTER the current time, we redefine
181 the waveServer FLAG is 'REQUEST-AFTER-THE-TANK'
182Ilya Dricker 5/19/2010
183
184trig2disk
185Postproc external script is now launched with tow arguments :
186date (YYYYMMDD) and time (HHMM) of the processed event.

191****************************************************
192
193Environment Variable expansion in .d files
194Added file environment/earthworm_commonvars.d for declaring "Earthworm Common Variables"
195It is now possible to declare variables like ${...} within .d configuration files
