The SENDX statement sends a block of data (in hexidecimal) directly to a device. It takes the general form: 

SENDX output {:} TO FileVar THEN | ELSE statements


The output is an expression evaluating to a string that will be sent to the output device (specified by FileVar). It is expected that OPENSER or OPENSEQ has already opened the device.

The SENDX statement will append a newline sequence to the final output expression unless it is terminated with a colon ":" character.


As the expression can be any valid expression, it may have output formatting applied to it.

The SENDX syntax requires a specified THEN or ELSE clause, or both. If the data is send without error, it executes the THEN clause. If the data cannot be sent, it executes the ELSE clause.
