Parsing table

The parsing table in DBNet controls the dataflow to and from the local computer. The table defines what data to receive, any processing for that data, and what to send out. The table maps host names and addresses to Host IDS. File names combined with data types and sub-types map data to Message IDS. The Message ID and Host ID are used to create DBNet commands. The parsing table is searched from the top down. The first match of the Host ID and Message ID will be used. The QUECMDS will use all matching entries.

The parsing table can contain comment lines. A comment line must begin with the pound sign (#) and must be on a line by itself.

The fields in each line of the parsing table must be separated with white space. Any combination of spaces and tabs can be used.

Please read this chapter from beginning to end. There are many forward and backward references.

The table is divided into three logical sections. The actual table does not need to be divided into sections but it helps organize the information. The first section defines the Host IDs. The second section defines Message IDs. The third section defines QUECMDs.
