MPE Client Library
Raw Binary Format
Download and Installation Instructions
The following describes how to do a "raw binary" download/upload of the
MPE Eloquence client software to your HP 3000 system.
In your PC/Mac web browser,
installation archive file to your local hard drive.
The file is about 532KB in size and by default is called "eloqstd.bin".
Save the file somewhere you can find it later, perhaps
Now, you need to upload the eloqstd.bin file to your
HP 3000. Please note that you must be logged in as a user
with SM capability; our examples assume MANAGER.SYS,PUB.
There are several ways to upload the file:
Upload with a terminal emulator
This example uses WRQ Reflection.
Issue MPE file equation command:
Issue WRQ transfer command (press <Alt>Y to get to command
send eloqstd.bin to *eloqstd binary rec=256
Alternately, you can use Reflection's File Transfer Dialog. In
that case be sure to select the BINARY transfer type, record
length 256, and be sure to upload the file to "*eloqstd"
(Note the "*"; we are back referencing the MPE file equation
we set earlier).
The bottom line, regardless of what terminal emulator you are using,
is that you need to upload the file such that the result on
the HP 3000 is a file with records that are 128W FB and
has file code STORE (2501).
Upload via FTP
This example uses the Windows bundled FTP client.
Start a DOS window (also called "MSDOS" window)
(Possibly via: click on START, then PROGRAMS, then "Command Prompt")
- CD to the directory where you downloaded the eloqstd.bin file.
Start FTP: FTP yourhp3000computername
(Note: this requires that you are running an FTP server
on your HP 3000)
Logon (within FTP) to MANAGER.SYS
Enter the following FTP commands. Please note that the
file and directory names are CASE SENSITIVE:
put eloqstd.bin ELOQSTD;rec=128,1,F,binary;code=2501
Now that the file has been uploaded to your HP 3000, we continue:
- On your HP 3000, verify that the eloqstd file looks
ACCOUNT= SYS GROUP= PUB
FILENAME CODE ------------LOGICAL RECORD----------- ----SPACE----
SIZE TYP EOF LIMIT R/B SECTORS #X MX
ELOQSTD STORE 128W FB 2125 16776959 1 2128 5 *
Note: the LIMIT and SECTORS columns may vary slightly, and the LIMIT
column may be larger than the EOF column ... those differences are
not problems. However, the file code must be STORE,
the file record must be 128W FB, and the EOF must
match what you see above.
- Set a file equation
- Restore the installation macro file (ELOQINST.PUB.SYS)
from the archive:
- Execute the installation macro, which will perform the rest of
the installation, and ask you some questions along the way:
