Rumba provides several powerful tools for automating host communications tasks.
Rumba macros are used to automate simple tasks such as logging on, copying and pasting text between Rumba display windows and applications such as Microsoft Excel, or sending a sequence of commands to the host.
You can save a macro as a connect or disconnect macro - a macro that automatically logs on or off each time you open or close the session profile in which it was created.
The separate Rumba Script Editor provides more complex and powerful automation options than the Macro Editor. You can use scripts to automatically reconfigure the user interface, perform random access file operations, automate tasks, modify functionality, and handle incoming events.
Where provided, the Rumba Script Editor can be installed by double-clicking the ScriptEngine.msi file.
