During the morning session I mentioned RTML, and how the robotic
telescope community is using it to make data requests, some interest
was shown by various people at the meeting, so...
I thought I'd throw some links at you so that you can have a look a
this stuff in your own time, the main RTML page can be found at
the RTML version the eSTAR (www.estar.org.uk) project is using is
an extended version of RTML v2.1, and was "officially" adopted as
RTML v2.2 at the end of 2002, it provides a fair bit more functionality
than RTML v2.1 but preserves the syntax (ie. its backwards compatible).
A summary of the syntax can be found at
the DTD for v2.2 can be found here
and also here
and some simple RTML v2.2 examples at
