17    *moxy* (an EPICS GUI tool) provides support for an X,Y positioner
18    (motor) pair by allowing users to define a table of known positions
19    and providing a one-button click to drive a chosen X,Y pair to a specific
20    table setting.  Also can record current position into a setting.
21
22    Several sets of X,Y positioners can be configured.  (Each set is
23    separate.)  In fact, the positioners do not have to be motors,
24    but can be any type of EPICS PV that will accept a numeric value.
25
26
27    moxy is based on wxPython and relies on CaChannel to communicate
28    with EPICS.
29   
30    In the Graphical User Interface (GUI), tooltips are provided for
31    most items.  Moving and pausing the mouse over a widget (GUI
32    component such as a button or a label) will cause a terse description
33    of that widget to be displayed. Moving the mouse away will cause that
34    tooltip to disappear.
35   
36    For more help, explanations are provided in the HTML pages.
