Many scripts are available for popular data sources, including EDI (Inbound), Mailing Labels (2-up, 5-up), STN, Reuters, Dodge Dataline, Dow Jones, Internet Email, Xerox, and WWW/HTML (List and Table).
The source code for these scripts are installed with CXL. CXL requires Map Designer or Integration Engine for script processing and transformation of the data extracted by a CXL script.
Although the CXL language is copyrighted, developers may fully exploit any CXL script for commercial or corporate use.
