EPIC X-Motif Point-and Click Interface
is X-motif based GUI that provides an easy access
to the EPIC meta data files from desktop UNIX computers. By connecting
to backend Ingres or mSQL database using Remote Procedure Calls
(RPCs) routines, the XEPIC
retreives metadata of the data
files, including the path and name of the data file, geographic
range, depth range, time range, cruise ID, cast number, etc.
This application is developed using C language with the Motif
toolkit on Solaris machine. X-Designer,
an interactive tool, is used for building prototyped GUIs.
