xSpool – File spooler
- xSpool is a file manager.
- It monitors a folder to process any new file
- 1. In all cases where an application cannot call a Windows dll or an Active-X,
- 2. To process files automatically and asynchronously from one or more sources.
- 3. If you don’t know how to implement a vpxPrint call from your development language…
- 1. A character application cannot call the vpxPrint dll but can create an .xpr file,
- 2. The creation of the .xpr file can be done in batch,
- 3. The .xpr file can be created by a system different from Windows, Linux for example.
How it works
xSpool runs in minimized mode in the system tray.
xSpool runs on a Windows Operating system.
It monitors the files in a local or remote folder.
Local files or remote files on a shared drive or an FTP server.
When a new file is detected…
xSpool processes the file with the associated application.
The .xpr files are automatically associated with vpxPrint.
Different fine settings:
- Processes files by registered suffix,
- Encrypting of FTP connection parameters,
- Runs *.bat files,
- Unzips *.zip files before processing,
- Optional backup of processed files,
- vpxPrint restart mechanism,
- A complete log…
A spooler to exchange and process files locally or between computers over a network.
With xSpool, you can use vpxPrint to build and preview WINDOWS reports, even if the main application is character-based on a UNIX host.
It is the link between character environments and WINDOWS graphic systems.
xSpool is able to call any program on a WINDOWS system to open files.
It can also be used as a general interface (WORD, EXCEL etc.). xSpool accepts any type of file and selects the registered application to open it.
It searches for files to process:
- locally, on a directory,
- remotely, on a shared drive,
- remotely, on an FTP server.
- In minimized mode in the system tray,
- Able to run *.bat,
- It can unzip *.zip files before processing them.
