AstroCam is a C based Stepmotor Control system including a PHP-Webinterface.

The first AstroCam version was released in Dec 2001 and was written in C+Tcl/Tk. After i saw, that the combination of Tcl/Tk and C code wasn't a good thing, I wrote a CGI webinterface and a Gtk GUI. A few years later, I removed both parts, rewrote AstroCam completely, built an PHP webinterface and changed the communication system between its components to message queues.

Here are some key features of "AstroCam System":
Supported Operating Systems:
OpenBSD i386
NetBSD i386
FreeBSD i386
Linux 2.2/2.4/2.6 i386
Supported Browsers:
All browsers with IFrame-support (e.g. Konqueror, Internet Explorer, Mozilla/Firefox) should work. Netscape 4.x doesn't work.

What's New in This Release:
This release implements two new attributes in astrocam.conf for setting the width and height of the displayed Web cam image on the Web site.
Some code cleanup was done.
