    Other Function not Mentioned in the Documentation

    Hi

    In my VFP applications I often need:

    FTP
    SFTP
    HTTP POST/GET etc.
    Zip Compression for files and strings
    TCP/IP sockets for communication with devices to gather and send data
    Serial Communication

    Are these functions available in Lianja? If not I would like to suggest them as New Features.

    Thanks,
    Simon

    As stated in your other thread you can use COM/ActiveX is thats what you want to do.

    There are functions that handle HTTP in fact the fopen() function does just specify a URI as the filename.

    I was wondering whether there were built in features for FTP,SFTP Zip etc. so that they would be available cross platform and not just limited to Windows COM/ActiveX.

    A related question: the functions listed are, of course, available in Python, either as standard libraries or PyPi libraries. Can Python libraries be imported? Once imported, can they be accessed by other languages?

    Good point, yes you can and you can use the EXECPYTHON ( ) built-in function. We need to blog about where you put those python modules. There is also the same functionality available with PHP using EXECPHP( ). Lianja can integrate Python, PHP and JavaScript code in with VFP code.

    Thanks, I did not think of those possibilities.
