Request Suite

The Request programs are small CLI utilities that may be used in AmigaDOS shell scripts, AREXX scripts, and any other language that can easily interact with the shell environment. They provide GUI functions similar to the RequestFile and RequestChoice commands that are provided with KS3+ of the Amiga operating system.

The Requester programs are as follows:

RequestString

This program displays a requester containing text of your choice, and asks the user to enter a string. The string will then be printed to stdout, and so can be redirected to an environment variable, temporary file, etc.

Options are available to select a public screen for the requester, provide default text, and have the text in "hidden" mode for passwords, etc.

Current version: 1.1. Release date: June, 1995. Supported languages: English.

RequestList

RequestList takes a specified text file, and displays each line of text in a list gadget inside its window. When the user selects one of the lines of text, the line number (or the actual text itself, if you prefer) is written to stdout (for redirection, as above). This is very useful for menus, data selection, etc.

Various options are available for public screens, window size, etc.

Current version: 1.1. Release date: November, 1995. Supported languages: English.

RequestMode

The RequestMode utility prompts the user to select a screenmode from those currently available in the graphics.library screenmode database. This is then sent to stdout, either in English or as a screenmode ID code.

Current version: 1.0. Release date: December, 1995. Supported languages: English.
