What are RackTables gateways

RackTables is a PHP web application. Gateways are special executables residing on the same web-server, but not belonging to RackTables. The executables may be command-line scripts written in PHP, Perl, Python or any other language, or even binary files. Although PHP itself allows execution of arbitrary external commands, RackTables API provides helper functions to make such interaction ordered and convenient.

Using gateways API

There are two core functions:

function queryTerminal ($object_id, $commands, $tolerate_remote_errors = TRUE)
function callScript ($gwname, $params, $in, &$out, &$errors)
