GetASCII - Command Line / File Interface - Text API
The Command Line ASCII Text API is capable of monitoring a directory or a series of directories on the local hard drive or across the network, for an ASCII/text file output. The interface also provides a command line interface (executable) for other applications to use. The messages can then be formatted or directed to mobile phones or wireless devices.
The Text API allows many 'off the shelf' and custom applications, such as network monitoring applications, computer aided dispatch applications, building control software and many others, to deliver messages when specified events occur or thresholds are met.
In addition, the Command Line / ASCII Text API can scan
one or more directories (networked or local) for
text files (ASCII files) containing messages. PageGate
can 'watch' one or more files and folders for new
text files, that contain messages (this is a common
integration method for 3rd party applications)
This is an excellent front-end when
used as a tool for developers and system integrators,
to allow text messaging from within applications.
