The epicsdisplay utility provides a tabular display of an arbitrary set of epics channels. It is possible to configure a set of channels to be displayed on a chart recorder at the bottom of the display as well. Complete reference documentation is available at the epicsdisplay reference page
epicsdisplay reads in a configuration file. The configuration file is compatible with the controlpush application, which uses it to fetch epics channesl and make them known to epicsdisplay. epicsdisplay interprets additional information in the file as metadata that describes such things as:
Alarms on the channel and how to display the alarm condition.
Whether or not a channel should be displayed as a trace on a chart recorder graph at the bottom of the window.
Extensive online help is provided via the-> menu entry.
