NAME

       zoomsh - ZOOM shell

SYNOPSIS

       zoomsh [commands...]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

EXAMPLES

       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
           1 Default USmarc
           001    11224466
           003 DLC
           005 00000000000000.0
           008 910710c19910701nju           00010 eng
           010    $a    11224466
           040    $a DLC $c DLC
           050 00 $a 123-xyz
           100 10 $a Jack Collins
           245 10 $a How to program a computer
           260 1  $a Penguin
           263    $a 8710
           300    $a p. cm.
           ZOOM>quit

       You can also achieve the same result by passing the commands as
       arguments on a single command line:

       $ zoomsh "connect localhost:9999" "search computer" "show 0 1" quit
