No Automation or Scripting Support in HyperTerminal or HTPE

Q – I would like to know if HyperTerminal can execute several commands in sequence using some sort of scripting. Is there a way to automate tasks in HyperTerminal?

A – Neither HyperTerminal nor HyperTerminal Private Edition supports scripting. However, HyperACCESS, the commercial upgrade product for HyperTerminal and HTPE, does include a full API of communication functions that would allow you to script an entire communication session. You can use either the automated script recorder, accessible through the File menu, or create custom scripts with our powerful API which is Active X and OLE compliant. Our API functions can be incorporated within external programs, such as VBA.

You can preview HyperACCESS by downloading the Trial copy from HyperACCESS Trial. It is fully functional and the settings are saved. The file is H32TRIAL.EXE. Double-click the file to run the installation program. The evaluation period is 15 days.

You can also download the user’s and API manuals from this location. Both reference guides can be very helpful during the evaluation period.
