What is a terminal?
A computer terminal is an electronic or electromechanical hardware device that can be used for entering data into, and transcribing data from, a computer or a computing system. A terminal emulator is a computer program that emulates a computer terminal within some other display architecture.
ElectroNeek software is integrated with IBM Personal Communications terminal emulator which allows users to work with different midrange computers families including IBM AS/400 (iSeries).
How to get started?
The first step is to download and install the terminal emulator. ElectroNeek software supports working with IBM Personal Communications emulator. To download the trial version, follow this link, sign up and fill in the short survey. The next opened page will show you two versions available to download. Make sure that you download IBM Personal Communications (PCOMM) v14.0 for Windows Multilingual Trial version. The 64-bit version is not supported by ElectroNeek at the moment.
What is next?
When the terminal is downloaded, install it on your computer. The installation process is simple - follow the instructions, do not change any default settings.
When the terminal is installed, launch it. At the end of this article you will find the attached file (nasa.ws). This file is used to connect to the server using a terminal emulator. Run this file with a double click.
Now you can try interacting with this terminal: type “1” and press “Enter”. There you will see information about the planet Mercury.
Connecting to terminals in Studio Pro
ElectroNeek automatically connects to the IBM Personal Communcations emulator as long as the emulator is running and connected to the server. The emulator must be running in a single instance.
In this way, you can go straight to work with the actions from the “Terminal” section. Drag and drop any of them onto the canvas, such as "Input from keyboard". On the right side, you'll see a "Pick New Element" button, and clicking on it will open a special tool, Terminal Picker. This tool displays the same thing that the connected server displays in the emulator (without color rendering).
Specify the region on the Terminal Picker screen that you want to interact with. To do this, press the "Pick" button and adjust the X and Y coordinates to indicate the region you want. In addition to this method of setting coordinates, you can also press and hold the left mouse button and select the desired region on the terminal screen.
After that, you can then exit Terminal Picker and make sure that the bot is working correctly.
