-''​Obs.pl''​ supports Mark5B recording, as long as the "''​mark5access'' ​library and utilities are installed and accessible. Note this depends on the VLBI schedule having had explicit fringe test times added. Transfer times from Hartebeesthoek are terrible slow - usually it is faster to transfer the file by some other means then run ''​obs.pl''​ on a local machine.+''​Obs.pl''​ supports Mark5B recording, as long as the "​mark5access" ​library and utilities are installed and accessible.

 +===== RTFC Software support =====
 +
 +Please make sure the following are installed on all Mark5/​flexbuf machines from which RTFC will be run
 +
 +  * up-to-date mark5access (ensure m5time and m5slice in path. Good to have m5spec and m5bstat also)
 +  * subversion package (e.g, `apt-get install subversion`)
 +  * RTFC installed from subversion in either `~/RtFC` or `~/​evlbi/​RtFC`
 +  * `setup.sh` in `RtFC` directory and appropriately edited ​
 +  * Optionally "​source"​ RtFC `setup.sh` from login scripts
 +
 +==== Installing RtFC ====
 +
 +<​code>​
 +  > svn co https://​svn.atnf.csiro.au/​evlbi/​trunk evlbi
 +   (or svn co https://​svn.atnf.csiro.au/​evlbi/​trunk/​RtFC RtFC)
 +  > cd evlbi/RtFC
 +  > wget https://​cpan.metacpan.org/​authors/​id/​C/​CP/​CPHIL/​Astro-0.78.tar.gz
 +  > tar zxvf Astro-0.78.tar.gz ​
 +  > mv Astro-0.78/​Astro/​ .
 +  > cp setup-template.sh setup.sh
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Edit setup.sh as appropriately. Add RtfC directory to PATH and PERL5LIB, Set RTFC_CORRELATOR and RTFC_CONTROL to localhost if using ssh tunneling or pam0 if directly connection. Set ANTNAME and ANTID appropriately (ANTNAME anything descriptive,​ ANTID has to match vexfile).
