About This Guide
This guide explains the pcANYWHERE script language used with pcANYWHERE for DOS, pcANYWHERE for Windows, and pcANYWHERE32 for Windows 95 and Windows NT. It also describes the pcANYWHERE Editor used in Windows to create and edit script files. Please consult your program's READ.ME file and appropriate online help to determine différences that may be applicable with the création and execution of pcANYWHERE script files under different versions available. Note that this manual provides scripting examples for pcANYWHERE for Windows and pcANYWHERE for DOS that, in many cases, are also available under pcANYWHERE32.
If you are not already familiar with batch files or programming languages, read Chapters 1 and 2, "Getting Started Using Scripts" and "Components and Concepts." They provide the background information that will enable you to use the script language effectively. Some of the information in Chapter 2 is aimed at more technical users. If you don't understand the finer details, don't worry; you'll still be able to take advantage of the script language's power.
Chapter 3, "Managing Scripts in pcANYWHERE for Windows," explains the pcANYWHERE Editor for use with pcANYWHERE for Windows.
Chapter 4, "Script Language Command Référencé," is an alphabetical listing of the script language commands. The entry for each command includes its syntax, description, and parameters, the changes it makes to reserved variables (such as $Result and $Error), an example of its use, and a "See Also" section that lists any related commands.
At the back of the guide are two appendices—a list of reserved variables and a list of error messages—and a glossary of terms used in the guide.
This guide assumes that users of pcANYWHERE for Windows know how to use Windows. If you are not familiar with such Windows terms as "dialog boxes," "icons," "option buttons," and "list boxes," refer to your Microsoft Windows documentation.
