Manifold® Release 9 provides scripting using
Visit the API Documentation for complete details and many examples of scripting in Manifold. Visit the User Manual to learn how to use Manifold interactively and to get a good conceptual foundation for programming Manifold.
"The initial C# examples on the API web site are certainly beautiful" - Forum post
The API Documentation provides total details on the API and also provides hundreds of examples, many of which are provided in three versions: C#, VBScript and IronPython.
The API examples below provide side-by-side C#, VBScript and IronPython code to connect to an IMG file and retrieve a table that contains image data. The file format can be ERDAS IMG, ENVI IMG, IDRISI IMG or any other supported technology that matches the filename.
Manifold creates new scripts with a text stub that provides a "Hello, World!" example in that language. Following are examples of the default "Hello, World!" scripts which Manifold creates automatically when a new script window is opened using a Manifold supported scripting language.
Interact with SQL
You can use snippets of SQL everywhere in Manifold, including within scripts, and you can use scripting to create functions called by SQL. Scripts can use the vast range of Manifold SQL query functions as if they were implemented in the object model.
Manifold is Agnostic
Manifold is completely agnostic about programming languages, as can be seen by the wide range of languages which are directly supported for scripting in Manifold. C#, JScript, JScript.NET, VB.NET and VBScript are supported and are always available because of the Microsoft environment required for Manifold. Manifold also supports F#, IronPython, IronRuby, PerlScript and PythonScript, which are easy to install if desired.
