DDE Command v1.6


This is a command line (aka console) based tool for querying text data from DDE servers. It provides support for both the synchronous and asynchronous DDE transaction types: XTYP_REQUEST, XTYP_POKE, XTYP_EXECUTE and XTYP_ADVDATA. It also allows for querying running servers with the XTYP_WILDCONNECT transaction type.

This tool forms one part of my DDE toolkit, with the others being:-

DDE Query: My original GUI based DDE query tool. DDE COM Client: A scriptable COM component for accessing DDE servers.


Stable releases are formally packaged and made available from my Win32 tools page: http://www.chrisoldwood.com/win32.htm

The latest code is available from my GitHub repo: https://github.com/chrisoldwood/DDECmd


There is an HTML based manual (DDECmd.html) which can be launched using the --manual switch.
