Capturing IBM i host screens
Often there will be a need to view and work with IBM i host screens offline when a live connection to the host is not available. In these instances looksoftware provides the facility to capture host screen information in a discrete file that can then be loaded offline. The captured host screens are stored with a file extension of (.nl).
Working offline removes the constraints of always having to have a live connection during development. nl host screen captures are a complete capture of the host screen information and therefore can be viewed in either GUI or emulator view. This is particularly useful for offline demonstrations and early development work.
