DBW Scripts

Creating Scripts

To save time, you can create scripts of frequently used commands in any DBW application window. When you run the scripts, DBW treats these scripts as if you typed the commands on the console.

You can create a script file with any text editor, such as vi or Emacs. The file should contain a list of commands with one command on each line.

Running Scripts in DBW

1 Click File>Send Script File from an active application window.

2 In the Send Script dialog box, click the log file or specify a new file name, and click Okay or Open.
