The Booster LOCO files¶
The LOCO files for Booster are deposited here. Presently, LOCO requires:
- Mathematica to generate the sdds files from the orbit response measurements (ORM) and to generate the files to be uploaded into the Booster magnets.
- Elegant for transporting the beam
- TCL the scripting language used to generate the matrices for Gauss-Newton fitting.
- octave for performing Gauss-Newton
There is a lot of set up to do by the end user to get LOCO working! The long term goal is to simplify the entire process!
Please use git to get a copy of the LOCO files with the following command to clone a copy of LOCO onto your local machine
git clone http://cdcvs.fnal.gov/projects/booster_loco
Note: there is a tcl script qsub in the bin directory that is needed for machines that do not have qsub. Put this program somewhere in your path. Make sure to
chmod +x qsub
to make qsub executable. There is some documentation:
You will probably need some help to get LOCO working on your machine because it is rather complicated. Contact:
