I know this can probably be done with Kermit or a similar app, but I'm looking for a very simple terminal that works over HTTP, and just accepts one full text string at a time, then displays the response from the server in a window. Optionally too, I'd like to be able to peruse the source code.
I tried to search through various test tools on the web, but did not see a simple app such as this.
The purpose for this, is that the server will be listening for input, then parse the entire string looking for certain words embedded in the string, for example:
show;list;aaa (using a split or explode command). I need this for Windows 7, currently.
You would type this in, then press a submit button, and the server would parse the string and send back text based on what you typed in.
I already have the server set up to do this, and that end is fully debugged.
It would need to allow the URL to be changed for various ports, outside (internet servers),
etc., and to have no encryption.
It needs two fields to be entered: the URL (for example localhost:8080 ) and then the text string (only needs one line). Then the output to be displayed on the same screen, or a separate pane. When entering the text, it would need to be submitted only after the entire line was typed in (and without using the enter or return key), but rather via a button.
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
