This chapter presents the MMSI application programming interface. MMSI is the programming interface recommended in MAP to access the MMS protocol. It is assumed that the underlying operating system offers multitasking. The MAP specification defines an abstract interface that can then be particularised for specific languages. Currently, the only binding defined is for the C programming language. In practice, all existing MMSI implementations run on UNIX workstations. DOS and Windows applications use much simpler interfaces to MMS, an example of which is given in Chapter 8 with the MMS/DDE interface developed in ESPRIT project CCE-CNMA.
