PicLan-IP TCP/IP Tools and Utilities

PicLan-IP offers a number of useful TCP/IP networking tools, utilities, and application programming interfaces to ease the integration of network functions with your MultiValue applications

HTTP Client

The PicLan-IP HTTP client lets your MultiValue BASIC applications browse the web.  The HTTP client is not a program designed for the user, but is instead designed to give your application access to other web sites data.  For example, with the HTTP client, your application can now real-time track UPS and Federal Express shipments by directly querying their web sites.  The possibilities the HTTP client brings are endless.  Save on shipping costs by tracking every package you ship.  Price your own stock portfolios.  Even put the weather forcast on users screens.

TCP/IP Sockets API

The PicLan-IP TCP/IP Sockets API is for those uses that want to directly manipulate network connections with their own application code.  The Sockets API lets you open, read, write, close, and query network connection directly from an easy to use BASIC interface.  Users have used the Sockets API for applications that range from processing credit card authorizations to executing remote proceedure calls to non-MultiValue systems.


The TELNET client allows users at TCL access to remote systems over TCP/IP TELNET terminal streams.  Primarily targetting at native system administrators, the TELNET client lets you log into remote systems, either MultiValue or not, from any host connected session including console, serial, or IPX PicLan.


PicLan-IP TCP/IP Tools and Utilities round out the network and MultiValue integration aspect of PicLan-IP.  With these tools you can integrate diverse functions within your MultiValue environment using a controlled, centralized approach and managing everything from within BASIC.
