a tour of the Xiscan Command Line
One of the key features of Xiscan is the Command Line
Tool. This tool allows telephone scanning through a powerful command line
interface, enabling integration of Xiscan into a production batch
processing system for unattended automatic out-of-hours scanning. (Support
for automated scanning has been further extended to include automated
generation of scan reports.)
The Command Line Tool supports a rich set of options: scan
statistics can be generated automatically, results captured to log files, and
scans automatically post-processed on completion. The command line variant
produces detailed exit status information, allowing a complex batch cycle to be
built from multiple dependent scans.
One of the most powerful features of the Command Line is to
allow new scans to be built dynamically from a pre-existing scan definition
using the clone facility.
