ScanEngine Explorer is intended to be customized to various specific purposes. For each purpose, the program can be configured to maintain independent program preferences, statistics, MIB definition load file, HTML script load file. Further, the program can be directed to assume any preconfigured personality at load time.
When you run ScanEngine Explorer, it loads a default personality defined by:
|preferences/default.dfm||default program preferences|
|MIB/default.txt||default MIB file list|
|HTML/default.txt||default HTML parsing script list|
|statistics/default.dfm||default program statistics|
When the program has been tailored to a given purpose, retain that tailoring as a personality. Make copies of these 4 personality files as:
|preferences/personality.dfm||personality program preferences|
|MIB/personality.txt||personality MIB file list|
|HTML/personality.txt||personality HTML parsing script list|
|statistics/personality.dfm||personality program statistics|
Essentially, for any specific purpose, ScanEngine Explorer can be configured to startup with a specific workspace, load & parse a specific list of MIB definitions, load a specific set of HTML scripts, load a specific script, and/or automatically start script execution, all while maintaining independent run-time statistics on communication transactions and script executions.
To start the program with a preconfigured personality, add the personality name as a run-time argument. Use either a batch file or shortcut to create an icon that will start the program with a preconfigured personality. For 24/7/365 indented purpose, a personalized batchfile can be inserted in the windows start-up folder for automatic personalized ScanEngine Explorer startup whenever windows starts.
When running ScanEngine Explorer, if it was started with a personality the name of the personality will be displayed on the program title bar as ScanEngine Explorer - personality. If it was started without a personality, the title bar will simply read ScanEngine Explorer -.
