The original concept of a language for specifying event connections began with Chris Saltmarsh and colleagues at the CERN Laboratory for Nuclear Research. Glish itself was originally developed by Vern Paxson, of the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, in consultation with Chris. Since shortly after release 2.5 in 1994, Darrell Schiebel, of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), has maintained and developed Glish.
Glish was originally developed as part of the Superconducting Super Collider, but currently, its primary use is for data reduction and telescope control in radio astronomy. In particular, it is a cornerstone of the AIPS++ system, and it is in this context that development of Glish has continued since release 2.5. Indeed, it has been the AIPS++ developers and users who have uncovered the majority of problems which have been fixed. Their efforts are much appreciated.
Finally, Vern Paxson has been a great resource. His input was instrumental during the initial period of Glish development at the NRAO, and he has proven to be a great sounding board for new designs. His efforts are greatly appreciated.
