Description

The packages caPython and CaChannel implement the EPICS channel access (CA) protocol in Python. caPython wraps most of the CA functions into python functions. Macros and other useful functionality are also included. CaChannel wraps caPython functions into a Python class for easier use. Typical users should use CaChannel and power users can dip into caPython as needed.
