10.3. Command Summary

 

Following is a description of all PollCat III commands, listed in numerical order. 
^B00 Move Memory Partition 
Each time the Command Mode is activated, PollCat III places a memory partition at the end of the records received up to that point. To include call records that were received after entering Command Mode, type ^B00 [Enter]. 
^B01 Data Release Mode 
Releases Data Records and Alarm Records that PollCat III has collected from the PBX. This command will accept a number of optional arguments as described below. 
Note: 
• When call data is released in groups of "n" records or blocks 
(e.g. ^B01,30), Command ^B02 is used to display the next group of "n" records or blocks. 
To exit from the Data Release Mode and return to the Command Mode, type ^B30 [Enter]. 
While Data Release Mode is active, PollCat III responds to XON/XOFF (start/stop) codes for flow control. 
If Command ^B54,2 (Release Data with ^B02) is active, and Command ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "n" records or blocks, a ^B02 will be required in order to release the first group of records or blocks. 
If Command ^B52,2 (Hold "END DATA" Message) is active, and Command ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "n" records or blocks, a ^B02 will be required in order to release the "END DATA" message. 
 
Command Options: 
When Command ^B01 is invoked with command options, the following format is used: 
^B01[,type][,source][@n][,n] [Enter] 
Where: ,type The ,type argument offers the following options: ,A Release Alarm Records only. 
,� Release Data Records only. ,���� Release Alarm Records for ���� only. 
,s����� The ,s����� argument offers the following options: 
Release records received via PBX Port A. 
Release records received via PBX Port B. 
 
�� (Offset) Releases records starting with the "� th" record, where 
��� is a positive, whole number. For example, if 
AB01�23� is entered, PollCat III will release records, starting with the 234th record. 
,� (Count) Releases records in groups of "� ", where "n " is a positive, whole number. For example, if AB01,55� is entered, PollCat III will release records in groups of 555. 
^B01 Data Release Mode (Continued) Note: 
Square brackets are not included when the command option is entered. They are shown here in order to indicate an option. 
Each command option is preceded by a comma, with the exception of the Offset command (@n). The Offset command is preceded by the "@" character. Do not enter a comma before the "@" character. 
The ,clue and ,source options are not available in Binary Block Mode. 
When the ASCII Block Mode or Binary Block Mode are selected, command options will release blocks instead of individual records. 
After all specified records or blocks are released, PollCat III will send the "END DATA" message. 
 
Options can also be combined. For example, ^B01,clue,n will release records for the Alarm Clue “clue” in groups of "n" records or blocks. 
^B02 Send Next Group of Records 
In Data Release Mode, this command is used to send the next group of call records. When Command ^B01,n is invoked, PollCat III will release a group of "n" records or blocks and then pause. To display the next group, type ^B02 [Enter]. Command ^B02 is only valid in Data Release Mode and cannot be used in a command string. 
Note: 
If Command ^B54,2 (Release Data with ^B02) is active, and Command ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "n" records or blocks, a ^B02 is required in order to release the first group. 
If Command ^B52,2 (Hold "END DATA" Message) is active, and Command ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "n" records or blocks, a ^B02 is required in order to release the "END DATA" message. 
 
^B03 Send Banner Message / Command String 
Displays the Banner Message, Auto Execute Command String, or Report Mode Command String that is defined using Command ^B04. Type ^B03 [Enter]. 
^B04 Define Banner Message / Command String 
Defines either a Banner Message, Auto Execute Command String, or Report Mode Command String. Note that Command ^B04 cannot be used to simultaneously define all three items. 
Banner Message: Often used to list the company name and installation site. When Command ^B04 invoked, the following format is used: 
^B04,message [Enter] 
Where message is the Banner Message text (up to 64 characters). 
Auto Execute Command String: This Command String will be invoked when PollCat III calls the polling device, and the correct password is not entered within 10 seconds. The command string will not be executed when the polling device calls the PollCat III. In order for the command string to function, the Auto Execute feature (^B69,2) must be enabled. The following format is used: 
^B04,*command_string [Enter] 
An asterisk (*), rather than the ^B character, is used to indicate an Auto Execute Command String. Each command in the string is separated by a backslash as shown in the following example: 
^B04,*00\20\09 [Enter] 
The Auto Execute Command string should always end with Command ^B09 (Disconnect). This will prevent PollCat III from being inadvertently left in Command Mode. 
^B04 Define Banner Message / Command String (Cont.) 
Report Mode Command String: This command string will be automatically executed when Report Mode is active (^B87,4), and a Toll Fraud Alarm is generated. The following format is used: 
^B04,!command_string [Enter] 
An exclamation point (rather than an asterisk or ^B) is used to denote a Report Mode Command String. Each command is separated by a backslash as shown in the following example. 
^B04,!13\20,A\84\09 [Enter] 
This Report Mode Command String would send the Alarm Message with clue name and count (^B13), send the current number of stored Alarm Records (^B20,A), clear the alarm condition (^B84), and then disconnect (^B09). 
The Report Mode Command string should always end with Command ^B09 (Disconnect). This will prevent PollCat III from being inadvertently left in Command Mode. 
^B05 Define End-of-Record Character 
Redefines the End-of-Record (EOR) character that PollCat III expects to see at the end of each call record. The default EOR character is ^J (Line Feed). The command format is as follows. 
^B05,character [Enter] 
Note: 
The End-of-Record character must be entered as an uppercase letter (e.g. ^M instead of ^m). 
The "^" symbol in the EOR character definition is created by pressing [Shift][6]. For example, the "^M" character is created by pressing [Shift][6] and then typing an uppercase M. Do not press [Ctrl] to create this symbol in the character definition. 
 
^B06 Re-send Last Group of Records 
This command is often useful in the event of a transmission error due to line noise during the previous read. Command ^B06 will only function when ^B01,n is invoked. To re-send a record or block, type ^B06 [Enter]. 
^B09 Exit Command Mode (Disconnect/HangUp) 
Exits from Command Mode, discontinues connection to PollCat III, and resets the internal modem. To exit Command Mode and disconnect, type ^B09 [Enter]. 
Note 
Always exit from Command Mode after polling or management tasks are complete. While Command Mode is active, PollCat III is not able to perform tasks such as dialing a modem or pager. 
If Set-Up Switch 6 is UP (enable Direct Connect mode), PollCat III will return the COMPLETE message, but will not actually exit Command Mode. 
If Set-Up Switch 7 is UP (enable Computer Port Password), the Direct Connect Mode will be overridden. When the Computer Port Password is enabled, Command ^B09 will cause the unit to disconnect and the password will still be required, regardless of the position of Switch 6. 
 
^B11 Set Real Time Clock / Calendar 
Sets PollCat III's Real Time clock and calendar. Command ^B11 uses the following format. 
 
4 = Wed., 5 = Thur., 6 = Fri., 7 = Sat.) MM\DD\YY Month (01 -12), Date (01 -31), and Year (00 -99) 
^B12 Define Callback Schedule 
Instructs PollCat III to contact the polling device at a specific time in order to release accumulated data. 
Note 
You may schedule up to seven callbacks per week, one for each day of the week. 
Daily callbacks specified by Command ^B12 will be performed in addition to any Immediate Callbacks or 80% Full Callbacks required. 
PollCat III must have data stored in memory in order for a scheduled callback to occur. 
To completely clear the Callback Schedule, type ^B12,* [Enter]. 
To clear the schedule for a given day, type ^B12,d [Enter] (without a time value). Where "d"isa number that indicates the desired day. 
 
Command ^B12 uses the following format: 
 
^B13 Send ID / Alarm Message 
Sends the Identification Message or Alarm Message defined at command ^B14's "MSG?" prompt, along with the name of any clue that is in the alarm state, and the status of the counter for that clue. To send the ID or Alarm Message, type ^B13 [Enter]. 
^B14 Define Callback Parameters 
Defines the parameters that are used when a callback is initiated. These parameters include the Callback Number, Alarm Number, and other options. Callback Parameters can either be defined by a menu driven routine, or entered in a single ^B14 command line. 
^B14 Menu Driven Parameter Entry: Type ^B14 [Enter], the following prompts will be displayed:

Caution: Command ^B25 will erase all records in the current memory partition, regardless of whether the records have been read. Make certain you have retrieved all desired data before issuing this command. 
If Command ^B25 is invoked, and the "SURE?" option is enabled (^B75,2), a prompt will be displayed. Type Y [Enter] to erase data, or type N [Enter] to abort. 
Command Options: 
 
^B27 Send Continuous Test Message 
Tests the modem transmitter. When Command ^B27 is invoked, the unit will send a continuous test message, which reads "This is a test of the PollCat III 1234567890". To initiate the test, type ^B27 [Enter]. To terminate the test, type ^B30 [Enter]. 
^B28 Enter Echo Test Mode 
Tests the modem receiver. When Command ^B28 is invoked, PollCat III will echo back a test character. If characters are not echoed back, this can indicate that the modem is not receiving properly. To initiate the test, type ^B28 [Enter]. To terminate the test, type ^B30 [Enter]. 
^B29 Enter Pass-Through Mode 
Allows direct communication with the PBX. In Pass-Through Mode, data can be received directly from the PBX in order to check for correct reception. Commands can also be sent directly to the PBX. While Pass-Through Mode is active, additional call records will not be stored. 
If you are communicating with the PollCat III via the Modem Port, the Pass-Through Mode also permits direct communication with the device connected to the Computer Port. If necessary, this allows the user to access a connected device (such as your PBX maintenance port) via modem. 
The Pass-Through Mode features 4 Kbyte buffering in both directions to prevent overflow problems. Command ^B29 offers the following options: 
PBX Port A: To access the PBX connected to PBX Port A, type ^B29,A [Enter]. The system will display the "PBX-A READY" message. 
PBX Port B: To access the PBX connected to PBX Port B, type ^B29,B [Enter]. The system will display the "PBX-B READY" message. 
Computer Port: If you are communicating with the unit via the Modem Port, you can also access the device connected to the Computer Port. Type ^B29,C [Enter], the system will return the "READY" message. 
 
Note: 
To leave the Pass-Through Mode and return to the Command Mode, type ^B30 [Enter]. 
Caution: Please refer to the PBX User's Manual for further instructions. Do not attempt to alter the configuration or access codes of the PBX unless you are authorized to do so. 
^B30 Exit to Command Mode 
Exits from Data Release Mode, Send Continuous Test Message Mode, Echo Test Mode, Pass-Through Mode, or Monitor Mode and returns to Command Mode. Type ^B30 [Enter]. 
^B37 Load and Test Memory 
Tests internal memory. When Command ^B37 is invoked, PollCat III will clear all internal RAM memory, and load a test pattern, which is then used to verify memory condition. 
Caution: When Command ^B37 is invoked, all data stored in PollCat III's internal memory will be lost. 
The test will require seven seconds for every 256K of memory. If no problems are detected , the "COMPLETE" message will be sent. If a memory error is detected, PollCat III will send a message similar to the example below: 
ERROR: --> SOCKET: 1MB, CHIP: M1 
If the test indicates a memory error, please contact WTI Customer Service as shown in Appendix H. To begin the memory test, type ^B37 [Enter]. 
^B38 Re-Read Memory Test Pattern 
Re-reads the test pattern that was loaded and read with Command ^B37. While the test pattern is being read, additional call data will not be stored. Note that Command ^B37 must be invoked to load the test pattern before Command ^B38 can be used to re-read the test pattern. Type ^B38 [Enter]. 
Note: 
Although Command ^B37 will both write and test memory, Command ^B38 can be used to read a previously loaded memory pattern without writing to memory first. This is useful for testing longer term memory retention or testing battery backed memory after an interruption in power. 
^B39 Clear All Records / Blocks 
Erases all stored data, including any records stored behind the memory partition. Command ^B39 includes an option that also allows the user clear all data and reset all Alarm Clue Counters to zero. 
Caution: Once call records have been erased, they cannot be restored. 
If the XON/XOFF option (^B57,1) is enabled, an XOFF will be sent out the PBX Ports at the start of the process and an XON will be sent at the end. Any data generated during this time will not be stored. 
If the "SURE?" option is enabled (^B75,2), a prompt will be displayed to allow user confirmation before the command is completed. Type Y to proceed, or N to abort, and then press [Enter].

If the "SURE?" option is enabled (^B75,2), a prompt will appear. Type Y to proceed, or N to abort, and press [Enter]. 
Command Options: 
 
^B52 Hold "End Data" Message 
Instructs PollCat III to hold the "END DATA" message normally sent at the end of Data Release Mode. When this option is enabled, and Command ^B01,n is invoked (release data in groups of "n"), the "END DATA" message will be held until a ^B02 is received from the polling device. 
Command Options: 
 
^B53 Select Compression Mode 
This command determines whether data will be released in space compressed format, or decompressed (normal) format. 
The data compression feature cuts the size of records or blocks by replacing blank spaces with lower case letters which represent the number of spaces that will occur when text is decompressed. In other words, lower case "a" represents one blank space, lower case "b" represents two spaces, lower case "c" represents three spaces, and so forth. 
Example: Assume the "�" character represents one blank space. A call record that consists of the text: 
"123���ABC�����2002��XYZ�7" 
would be compressed to read: 
"123cABCe2002bXYZa7" 
Later, when text is decompressed, each lower case letter would be replaced with the appropriate number of blank spaces. 
Command Options: 
^B53,1 Release Data in Compressed Format ^B53,2 Release Data in Decompressed Format (Default) 
^B54 Release Data With Command ^B02 
Determines how PollCat III will react when Command ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "N" records or blocks. 
When Command ^B01,n is invoked in the default state (^B54,1), the first group of records or blocks will be released without the need to issue a ^B02 command. After the first group is released, PollCat III will require a ^B02 to release any subsequent groups. 
If Command ^B54,2 (Wait for ^B02) is active, and Command ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "n" records or blocks, a ^B02 will be required in order to release the first group. In addition, a ^B02 will also be required to release any subsequent groups. 
Command Options: 
^B54,1 Release First Group without ^B02 (Default) 
^B54,2 Wait for ^B02 Command 
^B55 Strip Non-Printable Codes

^B62 Select Output Format 
Selects one of the four output formats described below. 
ASCII Record Mode (^B62,1) 
PollCat III will release one record, all records or a user specified number of records, depending upon the implementation of Command ^B01. Each record consists of a line of ASCII text, terminated by the End-of-Record character. Records can include a Line I.D. Number (^B59), and can be sent in compressed or decompressed format (^B53). Records can also include CRC characters (^B63). 
ASCII Block Mode (^B62,2) 
Data is released in ASCII blocks. The size of each block is determined by Command ^B80 (default = 512 bytes). Each block can include a Line I.D. Number (^B59), and can be sent in compressed or decompressed format (^B53). Data blocks can also include CRC characters (^B63). 
Binary Block Mode (^B62,3) 
Data is released in compressed binary blocks. Each 512 byte block contains a character count, block header, and data followed by a two byte CRC check sum. Please refer to the PollCat Advanced Programming Supplement (WTI Part No. 11998) for more information. 
XMODEM Mode (^B62,4) 
Allows data to be sent using XMODEM protocol. The Modem Port must be set to 8 bits, no parity. For more information on XMODEM mode, please refer to the example in Section 9.2.4. 
Command Options: 
 
^B63 Enable / Disable CRC Option 
Appends a two-byte CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) to the end of each data transfer. The CRC check is used to make certain that data has been correctly transmitted and received. This function is optional in either of the ASCII output formats, but is always enabled in Binary Block Format. The CRC code will be appended to record transmissions only. Responses to commands will not be followed by CRC codes. 
Note: 
When CRC checking is used in either of the ASCII output formats, the modem port should be set to eight bits, no parity in order to receive all bits of the CRC. 
Command Options: ^B63,1 Disable CRC Option (Default) ^B63,2 Enable CRC Option 
^B64 Enable/Disable Wrap Around Mode 
When PollCat III's internal memory is full, the wrap around mode allows new data to be written over older data. This allows PollCat III to continually recycle its memory. 
While Command Mode is active, new data will not overwrite older data in the current memory partition. Any new data will be stored on the other side of the partition. If memory is full, no additional data will be stored while Command Mode is active. 
If the XON/XOFF option is enabled (^B57,2), an XOFF will be sent to halt the flow of data when memory is completely full and Command Mode is active. When you exit Command Mode, an XON will be sent, the data flow will resume, and if necessary, new data will continue to overwrite older data. 
Command Options: 
^B64,1 Disable Wrap Around Mode (Default) 
^B64,2 Enable Wrap Around Mode 
^B65 Enable/Disable Alarm Filter (Toll Fraud Detection)

^B68 Select Duplex Mode (Command Echo) 
Selects either Half Duplex (no echo) or Full Duplex (echo). Full Duplex mode will echo each keystroke to your display monitor. 
A half duplex (no echo) situation can also be created by invoking any command with the "^A" character substituted for the "^B" character. When "^A" is used, PollCat III will not echo the command back to the polling device, regardless of the current status of Command ^B68. 
Command Options: 
^B68,1 Half Duplex, no echo (Default) 
^B68,2 Full Duplex, echo 
^B69 Enable/Disable Auto Execute Option 
The Auto Execute command string will be invoked when PollCat III calls the polling device, and the correct password is not entered within 10 seconds. If the Auto Execute command string is not defined, PollCat III will execute the default command string (^B01/09). This will cause the unit to send all records stored in the current memory partition, and then disconnect. 
In order for this feature to function, Auto Execute must be enabled (^B69,2), Direct Connect must be disabled (Select Switch 6 = DOWN), and an Auto Execute command string must be defined using Command ^B04.
