zoomsh — ZOOM shell
zoomsh [-a apdufile] [-e] [-v loglevel] [commands...]
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.
- -a apdufile
Logs protocol packages into apdufile (APDU log).
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.
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 001 11224466 003 DLC 005 00000000000000.0 008 910710c19910701nju 00010 eng 010 $a 11224466 040 $a DLC $c DLC 050 00 $a 123-xyz 100 10 $a Jack Collins 245 10 $a How to program a computer 260 1 $a Penguin 263 $a 8710 300 $a p. cm.

You can also achieve the same result by passing the commands as arguments on a single command line:
$ zoomsh "connect localhost:9999" "search computer""show 0 1" quit
