This parameter determines how the interpreter should behave with respect to the RIDE protocol. Setting this configuration parameter on the machine that hosts the interpreter enables the interpreter-RIDE connection.
RIDE_Init can only be used to specify a limited number of RIDE configuration options; the rest must be specified in a RIDE ini file. Full details describing how to configure RIDE, including using certificates to authenticate connections can be found in the RIDE User Guide.
The format of the value is:
<setting> : <address> : <port>
setting is the action the interpreter should take. Valid values, which are case-insensitive, are as follows:
If setting is serve or http then address specifies the address of an interface in the machine running the interpreter. If setting is connect or poll then address specifies the address of a machine running the RIDE. Valid address values are:
port is the TCP port to listen on
Settings specified by the RIDE_Init configuration parameter take precedence over the same setting specified in the RIDE ini file. Note that the RIDE_Init configuration parameter can specify both config and one of serve, http, connect or poll. For example
This is most useful when multiple interpreters need to be run, each with its own RIDE connection as each must have a separate port number.
Note that the RIDE_Init configuration parameter is set automatically when launching a new Dyalog Session from the RIDE.
To allow an incoming connection through any interface in the machine running the interpreter:
To allow incoming Zero Footprint RIDE connection through just one interface of the machine running the interpreter:
