       x_dialtest - Xview demonstration and test program for SunDials


       x_dialtest  is  an  Xview application that displays a window with eight
       dials, corresponding to the dials on the SunDials dialbox. To determine
       if  the  dialbox has been set up correctly, turn a dial on the dialbox.
       If the dialbox is functional and correctly interfaced, turning  a  dial
       by  hand  will make the corresponding dial in the window turn a similar

       The dials do not have any notion of absolute angular  position.  It  is
       changes  in current angular position that are sent to the host applica-
       tion. Thus there is no notion of resetting the position of the dials on
       the dialbox hardware.

       The  Diagnostic  button  on the panel is a demo mode of the  x_dialtest
       program. The pointer of each of the dials in the window is rotated  one
       full  circle  and  then  disappears in turn.  When all eight dials have
       been rotated, the display dial pointers are  reset  to  their  previous
       rotational  positions.  The  only  diagnostic  done on the dialbox is a
       firmware self check. If this self check passes, then "OK." is  sent  to
       the standard output of the demo program.

       The  Ram Dump button on the panel arranges to place some  firmware data
       into the file ram_dump.dat in the current directory. It is intended for
       factory diagnostics use and is not publicly documented further.
