zoomsh — ZOOM shell

Synopsis

zoomsh [-a apdufile] [-e] [-v loglevel] [commands...]

Description

zoomsh is a ZOOM client with a simple command line interface. The client demonstrates the ZOOM API and is useful for testing targets.

You may pass one or more commands to zoomsh. These commands are invoked first.

Options

-a apdufile
Logs protocol packages into apdufile (APDU log).
-e
Makes zoomsh stop processing commands as soon as an error occur. The exit code of zoomsh is 1 if error occurs; 0 otherwise.
-v loglevel
Sets YAZ log level to loglevel.

Examples

If you start the yaz-ztest in one console you can use the ZOOM shell as follows:

$ zoomsh
ZOOM>connect localhost:9999
ZOOM>search computer
localhost:9999: 7 hits
ZOOM>show 0 1
1 Default USmarc

010    $a    11224466
