Subject: AutoRUN GUI resurrected 

We talked about the thing that watches the scripts for autolocking during the meeting today.

I've resurrected the Perl-Tk GUI that we used through i/eLIGO for watching the IFO and running the appropriate scripts. This is not meant to be a replacement for aLIGO stuff, but just something to get us going for now. I expect that we will make some new fanciness which will eclipse this, but I brought it back so that we don't start off with some 'Advanced' system which is worse than the old one.

You can run it from scripts/c1/ by typing ./AutoRUN.pl. It pops up the GUI and starts in a Disabled mode where it watches and does nothing.

I have done some editing of the GUI's code so that it uses caget / caput instead of ezca binaries. New stuff is in the SVN.

Next up is to start testing it and fixing it up so that it uses the thresholds set in the LSC screens rather than some hardcoded values.

Eventually we should also convert all of its daughter scripts from tcsh to bash to keep Jamie's blood pressure in the low hundreds...
