Site Statistics

kshContact is similar to a company rolodex except that it generates web accessible documents which can be linked into any other document on the Internet or Intranet. The web based personnel list documents include name, address, phone, FAX, pager, email, URL, etc. The list is generated in a tabular format and contain links to an automated paging system. Using a web browser, a user can click on a "pager" link and automatically send a digital or alpha-numeric page to anyone on the list.

Sample screens can be viewed at menulist_2016.html . To navigate through the screens, go to menulist_2016.html then press the "kshContact" button. From that point just press the desired menu button.

kshMenus is required to run this application and must be installed first. The communications program "Kermit" is also required to implement the paging capabilities of this system. The Kermit Unix Binaries can be retrieved from the following URL: http://www.columbia.edu/kermit/ck60ubin.html#list Kermit is used as the communication mechanism with a locally attached modem to send messages to digital or alpha-numeric pagers. The "pager" jobs can be queued to a local job spooler for execution. The job spooler usually consists of a special interface to the line printer system.

kshContact has been tested and confirmed operational on the following systems:

This is certainly NOT all inclusive. These are the systems to which I have access. I suspect that kshContact will run on most unix platforms.

kshContact is written in Korn shell scripts which makes it portable to virtually any Unix platform and you get the source code. Also, you do not need to maintain any additional, non-standard command interpreters, such as perl, since Korn is shipped as a standard shell with most Unix systems. The Korn shell scripts run as cgi programs on your web server.
