The software now is available in the same directory on dicklnx.psy.uva.nl.
Another directory, egg-r5 exists (98-09-26), but John has not yet said it is a new
release. As of 99-01-01, Greg has made release 5 beta available in /home/egg/src, or via
the link above.
These releases contain the source code and
the executable program for running an egg on your Unix machine. You may need to compile
from source for your particular machine. There is complete documentation in the source
code (egg.c) and all the changes from earlier versions are in the log.doc file.

- Current status report on eggs

This is now supplanted by the link from home page to EGG network status.
- Config file that defines the eggs
basket will see
A new field has been defined for the configuration file, to specify a URL wrapped around
the egg name in the HTML status report produced by the basket. This is done with a new
optional seventh field on the EGG declaration in the .basketrc file. For example:
BASKET diesse 188.8.131.52
EGG diesse 37 184.108.40.206 diesse PERM 1 http://www.fourmilab.ch/
EGG noosphere 28 220.127.116.11 noosphere PERM 1
EGG throop 1003 18.104.22.168 throop PERM 1
- Location of analysis programs
has developed a forms-based query interface which permits custom retrieval of data from
the real-time database files maintained by the basket. Simply enter the date for which
you're requesting data and the start and end times, and you receive an easy-to-parse CSV
file with the second-by-second results from all eggs which have reported data for that
period to the basket.
You can experiment with data
retrievals by accessing this URL. You can make requests of this server with lynx and http_get, as
well as URL streams from Java, to retrieve current data from the basket.
