Script Syntax: Send=Keyword

To Send command on a connection, use a Send=keyword. The form is Send=Command. The Command is exactly the message you want to send. You may use a combination of literal characters and binary representations.

WhatsUp Gold understands the C0 set of ANSI 7-bit control characters. A Binary can be represented  as \x##, where the ## is a hexadecimal value. Those familiar with the table may also choose to use shorthand such as \A (\x01) or \W (\x17)

You can also use \r and \n as the conventions for sending the carriage return and line feed control characters to terminate a line.

The following table shows the keywords you can use.




Binary value in Hexadecimal. For example, \x1B is escape


The "\" character


The tab character (\x09)


The return character (\x0D)


The new line character \x0A)

WhatsUp Gold versions 7 and 8 users: The %### decimal syntax for specifying binary octets has been replaced with the \x## hexidecimal syntax. Migrated definitions will be converted automatically.

Example 1:
# Note: script comments start with a # character
# Send a simple text command
Send=Hello There

Example 2:
# Send a command followed by CR/LF
Send=Select * from Accounts\r\n

Example 3:
# Send a binary escape (27) an x y and z and then a nak (21)
