10.2. Command Syntax
Most commands conform to the following conventions:
·All commands normally begin with the ASCII "Control B" character (written as ^B
throughout this manual).
·The ASCII "Control A" character (^A) can be used in place of ^B. Commands will
function the same, except the command will not be echoed back to the polling device,
regardless of the status of Command ^B68 (Select Duplex Mode).
·Each command (or string of commands) is invoked by pressing the [Enter] key.
·A comma (,) is used to separate a command from its options or parameters (e.g.
·Multiple commands can be sent on a single line, providing each command is separated by a
slash (/) character (e.g. ^B00/20/01). Note that ^B is not repeated for each command.
Command lines can be up to 256 characters long.
·When a command parameter involves a time value, hours are separated from minutes using
the colon character (:).
·When parameters or options are selected using a command line, the following character
conventions are used. Note that these character conventions are not used when responding
to prompts from menu driven commands.
When entering a comma (,) as part of a parameter or text string (other than the comma
between the command and option), use a semicolon (;) in place of the comma.
When entering a date, use a backslash (\), rather than a forward slash (/) to separate
the month, day and year.
