- New and exceptional features in SuperCom for Windows* and Linux*
SuperCom provides intelligent functions that considerably speed-up the development process in order to deliver fast reliable solutions. More...
- DataPacket - Receive and collect complete data packets automatically in background based on some definitions (DataPackets collector). More...
- Trigger - Trigger events when custom data packets or strings received. More...
- DataFilter - Modify a datastream on the fly. Low level data filtering functions e.g. activate ready made data filter or inspect and change data while received or transmited. Also supported custom filter functions. Write your own data filtering function. More...
- Data Monitoring - Low level data monitoring functions - Integrated Debugging Library.
- Event Reporting - Thread-safe event reporting and synchronization with Windows controls or runtime library.
- File Transmission Queue - File transmission using Queue, automatically in background, reporting progress status. Simple function call! (More...)
- Connecting in background - This function is working in background, reporting progress status, no need to develop threads! In the meantime the application can do other things.
- Extended XMODEM protocol. XMODEM compatible incl. ZMODEM like features and more. The Extended XMODEM protocol offers buffers up to 64K for high speed file transfers, File Options (transmit file names, request a file from the sender, compare date, size etc.).
- ZMODEM File Options - Instructions for the file receiver.
- ZMODEM/8k block option and the powerful ADONTEC extension ZMODEM/32k (ZMODEM/64k shipped on request). More...
- KERMIT Protocol
