Automated escape sequence ZOC

Automated escape sequence ZOC

Automated escape sequence ZOC


I am currently trying to make a script which lets me connect and disconnect through a telnet session on the ZOC emulator.

The problem that I'm running into is that I need to perform an escape sequence (ctrl + shift + 6, x).

I was wondering if there is any way that my script can execute this.

RE: Automated escape sequence ZOC

Trying to wrap my head around this question and not knowing anything about a ZOC emulator...

At some point, your script will relinquish control to ZOC (whatever that is) and won't have control again until ZOC returns or ABENDs. I'm guessing there isn't a callable function that issues the escape sequence? On either side of the fence?

Never really played with this but does below work?

string= ZocCtrlString("^(18)^(1E)^(36)")
Call ZocSend string "x"
