15.2.1. The Buffer Functions Menu


After configuring the command port, go to the NetLink II Main Menu, and type 2[Enter] to display the Buffer Functions Menu (Figure 15.2.) The Buffer Functions menu offers the following options:

1                     Set Read Session Parameters: Selects Read Session parameters, including the Source Port and Data Type, Start Record, and Record Count. For more information, please refer to Section 15.2.2.

2                     Set Partition: Sets the partition for the user's port according to currently selected Read Session Parameters. If Read Session Parameters have not been redefined, the partition for this port will include all records by default.

3                     Release Partition: Releases the port's partition, allowing other ports to access the formerly partitioned data.

4. Enter "Read" Session: When this item is selected, NetLink II will display a submenu before beginning data release. The following options are available:

a) Start Data Output: To begin, press [Enter].

b) Next Group (^B02): Used when releasing groups of records as described in Section 15.2.2. To release the next group, invoke command ^B02.

c) Re-read Last Data Record (^B06): Used when releasing groups of records (Record Count) as described in Section 15.2.2. To resend a group, invoke command ^B06.

d) Exit (^B30): To exit data release mode and return to the Buffer Functions menu, invoke command ^B30.


•                      When all specified records have been released, the "End Data" message is sent. If "Hold End Data" is enabled, a ^B02 command is required in order to release the End Data message and complete the data release procedure.

•                      If "Data On ^B01" is disabled, a ^B02 command must be sent in order to begin the data release.


1                     Erase Partition Data: Erases all data in the current memory partition. NetLink II will display a "Sure?" prompt; if confirmation is given, all data in the partition will then be erased. Note that this function will not erase records received after the partition was set.

2                     Erase All Data: Erases all stored records, including records in partitions owned by other ports. Note that NetLink II will not erase records that are currently being read by another port.
