ZOOMSH(1) Commands ZOOMSH(1)

zoomsh - ZOOM shell

zoomsh [-a apdufile] [-e] [ -v loglevel] [commands...]

zoomsh is a ZOOM client with a simple command line interface. The client demonstrates the ZOOM API and is useful for testing targets.
You may pass one or more commands to zoomsh. These commands are invoked first.

-a apdufile
Logs protocol packages into apdufile (APDU log).
Makes zoomsh stop processing commands as soon as an error occur. The exit code of zoomsh is 1 if error occurs; 0 otherwise.
-v loglevel
Sets YAZ log level to loglevel.

If you start the yaz-ztest in one console you can use the ZOOM shell as follows:
$ zoomsh
ZOOM>connect localhost:9999
ZOOM>search computer
localhost:9999: 7 hits
ZOOM>show 0 1
