IMPORTANT

This character, unless specified otherwise in the Symbols section, represents the character that tells PageGate that the three characters following it represent an ascii decimal value/ascii code. For instance, if you want to tell PageGate to look for a carriage return, you would use a backslash and the three character ascii deical value representing a carriage return. Written out, that would be \013

This section is where you tell GetASCII who or what sent the messages.

 

GetSerialSender

 

There are two possible configurations you can use:

Static Sender

GetSerialStaticSender

 

Selecting this option tells the GetASCII module that all messages processed should identify themselves as having been sent from the specified value. This is the value used in the majority of GetASCII implementations.

 

Dynamic Sender

GetSerialDynamicSender

Selecting this option tells the GetASCII module to look for specific patterns that denote where the sender information is located in within the record.

 

Start Pattern

This value determines the first character in the sender value.

 

Start Offset

This value determines how many characters before or after the identified start pattern to accept as the sender value. This field can be set to positive or negative values.

 

For instance, a value of 5 means that GetASCII will begin looking for the sender value 5 characters after the first character in the Start Pattern. A value of -5 means that GetASCII will begin looking for the sender value 5 characters before the first character the Start Pattern.

 

End Pattern

This value determines the last character in the sender value.

 

End Offset

This value determines how many characters before or after the identified End Pattern to stop character recognition. This field can be set to positive or negative values.

 

For instance, a value of 5 means that GetASCII will stop looking for the sender value 5 characters after the first character in the End Pattern. A value of -5 means that GetASCII will stop looking for the sender value 5 characters before the first character the End Pattern.

 

Lookup Table

The lookup table enables PageGate to perform basic search and replace commands. This allows you to interchange or translate values as needed. To enable this feature, check Use Lookup Table and click Edit Table.
