Example

[from file alias] : the input is a file. "typed" and "using" are usually irrelevant

[typed boolean] : Default: true. True: include the AppleScript type within the encoded entity. False: encode as raw data. If false, you have to specify a "as" parameter when reading the data with "decode64". If the direct parameter is a complex type (list or record) this parameter is always assumed to be true

[using type] : if "typed" is false, this parameter allows you to force the type of the data to encode. For instance, it is rather awkward to force AppleScript to use a given format for strings. Thus if you need to encode a string in UTF8 format it is often necessary to add "without typed using «class utf8»" at the end of the command

[line length integer] : the maximum line length of the result: some CRLFs are inserted in the result string if this parameter is not 0. Default:0.

→ string : the encoded string

Example

decode64 v : decode the base64 encoded direct parameter.

decode64 string : the encoded string

[as type] : Default: Unicode text

[typed boolean] : Default: true. If true, the "as" parameter is irrelevant; the original AppleScript type is encoded in the input. If false you have to specify the "as" parameter to get a returned value of a given type.

[to file] : put the result in a file, instead of returning a value. The parameters "as" and "typed" are irrelevant

digest v : make a digest from a string, a file (raw data) or a string containing raw data encoded in base64

digest [string] : the digest operates on the UTF-8 representation of the string

[from file alias] : a file containing the raw data

[base64 string] : the base64 representation of the data to digest

[algorithm text] : "SHA1"or "MD5". Default: "MD5"

Discussion
contained data is a list of real numbers corresponding to 3D points' coordinates: {x1,y1,z1,..xn,yn,zn}.
The meaning of contained data depends on the kind of the GLObject.
For curve3D and polygon, this list defines the successive points of the GLObject.
For triangle set (resp. quad set), this list must contain 3*n points (resp. 4*n points) to define n triangles (resp. n quads).
For triangle strip, this list must contain n+2 points to define n triangles: three consecutive points define one triangle.
For quad strip, this list must contain 2*n+2 points to define n quads: four consecutive points define one quad.
For tetrahedron (resp. parallelepiped), this list must contain 4*n points to define n tetrahedra (resp. n parallelepipeds). For each item the first point is the origin, and the three following points are interpreted as the edges' vectors.

If this parameter is missing, "call remote port" does not wait for a response. If this parameter is "", "call remote port" is synchronous and returns the response.

[error subroutine string] : the name of the subroutine to handle asynchronously the errors. If this parameter is missing, "call remote port" send the data synchronously. Prototype: on errorsubroutine(err,param), at runtime err is the error number and param is the value of "userparam"

[userparam anything] : a user parameter returned as the second parameter of the subroutines

anything : only if "subroutine" parameter is ""

resume server task v : the subroutine of a server port may throw an error number -1718 (ReplyNotArrived) to handle asynchronously the requests. In this case, the processing is suspended and will resume on a "resume server task" call.

resume server task integer : the task ID, received as the second parameter of the subroutine of the server port

with data string : data to send

remove server port v : close and free the server port

remove server port integer : the port number

register server port v : associate a port number of the machine to a public service type

register server port integer : the port number

service string : the service type. A valid Bonjour identifier i.e. "_myServiceKind._tcp" or "_myServiceKind._udp". If this port corresponds to a port open with "install server port" the suffix must be "._tcp"

[name string] : human-readable name of the service

[domain string] : default "local."

unregister server port v : unregister a port registered with "register server port"

unregister server port integer : the port number

list registered ports v : seek over the network to find remote ports handling a given service type

list registered ports string : the service type

[domain string] : default "local."

[timeout real] : default : 1 second

→ list of record : the found services
