The motion component exposes an application programming interface comprising a set of component functions and component code associates at least one of the component functions with at least one of the driver functions. For these component functions, the software system designer writes component code that associates at least some of the component functions with at least some of the driver functions.
Debug information containing diagnostic information associated with a hardware motion control attribute is generated. The software system designer thus further writes data response stream code for each of the streams 28 a, 28 b, and 28 c that determines how response data is transmitted from the controllers 16 to the system 22.In place of our usual Questions and Answers column this week we launch the first in a series of articles examining common misunderstandings in the open source community with this week's Myths and Misunderstandings tackling ZFS.Plus we hear from Fedora's Matthew Miller in our Ask A Leader column as Miller discusses security, touch screens and licensing.Welcome to this year's 16th issue of Distro Watch Weekly!This is an exciting time for open source enthusiasts as there are a lot of changes on the horizon.
And, indeed, the project lists its number one feature as "variety".
