Client and Manager

Manager monitors the micro controller, Classic Ladder, web manager, and client. When one component changes, manager makes the necessary changes to the other components. The components include a modbus TCP module (for Classic Ladder), serial module (for microcontrollers), and a MySQL database module (for webmanager).

Client is the graphical user interface which uses Qt libraries. It contains all application specific code and controls the system through manager. This software is all written in Ruby.
