4.2. Define PBX Data Input Format
The next step is to set-up the format that PollCat III will use when data is received from the
PBX. The following options are discussed in this section:
·Define End-of-Record Character (^B05)
·Enable/Disable "Strip Non-Printable Codes" Function (^B55)
·Enable/Disable Time/Date Stamp (^B66)
·Enable/Disable Wrap Around Mode (^B64)
4.2.1. Define End-of-Record Character
PollCat III's default setting assumes the last character in each call record will be <Line Feed>
(^J). Most PBX's use ^J as the End-of-Record (EOR) character. The most common EOR
character, other than ^J, is <Carriage Return> (^M). Many NEAX PBX's use ETX (^C) as the
EOR character. If the PBX uses an EOR character other than ^J, proceed as follows:
1. Enter the Command Mode and invoke Command ^B05 using the following format:
^B05,character [Enter]
Where character is the desired EOR character.
Example: To change the End-of-Record character to <Carriage Return> (^M), key in the
^B05,^M [Enter]
Note: When the EOR character includes the "^" symbol, this character is created
by simultaneously pressing the [Shift] key plus the [6] key. In the example above,
the "^M" character is created by pressing the [Shift] [6], and then typing an
uppercase M. Do not use the [Ctrl] key to create the "^" symbol in the EOR
character definition.
4.2.2. "Strip Non-Printable Codes" Function
This function allows the user to conserve memory and polling time by stripping out non-
printable characters such as NULS and DELS. When enabled, PollCat III will strip most non-
printable characters except Carriage Return, Line Feed, and the selected EOR character. To
enable or disable this function, enter the Command Mode and proceed as follows:
1. To store non-printable codes, type ^B55,1 [Enter].
2. To strip non-printable codes (Default), type
^B55,2 [Enter].
