  Help Page - isstart

( Some help pages may not display correctly in html because those help pages may have sample code
in them, part of which may be mis-interpreted as html tags.

All help pages, including this help page, are available in biterScripting with the help command. )




Command isstart Purpose Starts a new internet session (IS). Aliases isstart, isst Syntax isstart [<options>] <name> [ <description> [ <agent> ] ] Options -e This session requires explicit disconnection and ending. Without this option, the session will be disconnected and ended automatically as and when necessary. For example, if a second isstart command is issued with this session, the previous session will be ended before starting a new session with the same name. With this option, explicit calls to commands isdiscon and isend are required. Arguments <name> This is the name of the internet session, also called session. Session names are case-sensitive. This argument can be supplied using a constant, variable, expression, function call, inline command, or a combination of these, all resulting into a single value of type string. If a constant is used, it should be enclosed in double quotes. <description> The new session will be associated with this description. Description makes it easier to distinguish between sessions. This argument can be supplied using a constant, variable, expression, function call, inline command, or a combination of these, all resulting into a single value of type string. If a constant is used, it should be enclosed in double quotes. <agent> The new session will be associated with this agent. The agent describes your computing and networking platform to the server. This argument can be supplied using a constant, variable, expression, function call, inline command, or a combination of these, all resulting into a single value of type string. If a constant is used, it should be enclosed in double quotes. Internet servers often log and use the agent when processing internet requests. For example, they may send different versions of the same web page, depending on the value of <agent>. Stream Input Ignored. Stream Output None. Stream Error Any errors are listed here. Description This command starts a new internet session. Once a session is started, you can use the various IS commands with that session. For example, command iscon is used to connect the session to an internet server. Command isret is used to retrieve a web page. Command issub is used to submit a web form. Command issave is used to save a binary (or text) document from the internet to the local system. Once a session is started, it needs to be ended using the isend command, when you are done with the session. Leaving too many sessions started, may degrade performance, and may even result in failure to start new sessions. All started sessions will be ended automatically when biterScripting exits. Restrictions Valid Examples isstart "accesslog" "Automatic daily download of access log from my web site" "Mozilla/4.0" Will start a new session, assign it the name "accesslog", assign it the description "Automatic daily download of access log from my web site" and assign it the agent "Mozilla/4.0" . (Some of these terms may be trademarks, service marks or other forms of intellectual property of their respective owners.) isstart "s1" Will start a new session, assign it the name "s1" and no description and no agent. var str s set $s = "accesslog" isstart $s Will start a new session named "accesslog" and no description and no agent. Invalid Examples int i isstart $i Will produce an error. $i does not result in a value of type string. isstart "Automatic daily download of access log from my web site" This is not quite invalid. It will start a session with the name "Automatic daily download of access log from my web site" . If the intent is to use this string as the session description, use the following instead. isstart "daily_download" "Automatic daily download of access log from my web site" See Also IS isend iscon isdiscon istet issub isheadret isheadsub issave var
