HLLAPI

The Global Link Library is much easier to use and dramatically more powerful that writing EHLLAPI calls directly.
X, Windows(R) 95 and Windows(R) NT, features both TCP/IP TN5250 and TCP/IP TN3270 terminal emulation, TCP/IP enhancements, expanded EHLLAPI support, and improved national language capabilities.
In this way, they can run not only a full complement of 3270 functions, including graphics, but also client/host applications that rely on industry standard 3270 APIs like EHLLAPI.
Application interfaces include EHLLAPI, LUO and a 3270 data stream level API to create custom applications, as well as Windows DDE for inter-program communications.
Reflection also supports EHLLAPI to be compatible with legacy applications written to that API.
