Introducing Cicode

Cicode is a programming language designed for use in CitectSCADA to monitor and control plant equipment. It is a structured language similar to Visual Basic or 'C'. You need no previous programming experience to use it.

Using Cicode, you can access real-time data (variables) in the CitectSCADA project, and CitectSCADA facilities: variable tags, alarms, trends, reports, and so on. You can use Cicode to interface to various facilities on the computer, such as the operating system and communication ports. Cicode supports advanced features including pre-empted multitasking, multi threads, and remote procedure calls.
