External Task – Data File

Worked out example. This document is more a reference document for individual actions.

One of two types of external tasks.

that will work like you would expect a standard terminal program to work. You decide when to start the execution, and the program will use the current value of the input parameters. Once it has started you can modify the input but that will not automatically restart the task. ImageTank will constantly monitor the output from the task and update it in the background.
