Earthworm Migration Guide v7.0 -> v7.1

February 21, 2007

This is a REALLY quick and dirty guide to what you need to know to migrate from V7.0 to V7.1 in Earthworm. A new feature, added in v7.1, allows an operator to stop a given module using the stopmodule command. This allows you to stop a module without having statmgr restart it! The stopmodule implementation requires that a TYPE_STOP  message be added to your earthworm.d.

Yes, that's really all there is to it. See the documentation on startstop for more information on how to use the stop feature.
