ABSTRACT
A multithreaded modular software toolkit has been developed for centralized monitoring and control of complex scientific experiments and instruments. The Modular Control Toolkit (MCT) supports Unix-like operating systems and provides a reusable framework for user-developed modules to share data, setup software interlocks, and utilize a dedicated thread for hardware communication.
