mllp_send - MLLP network client

python-hl7 features a simple network client, mllp_send, which reads HL7 messages from a
file or sys.stdin and posts them to an MLLP server. mllp_send is a command-line wrapper
around hl7.client.MLLPClient. mllp_send is a useful tool for testing HL7 interfaces or
resending logged messages:

$ mllp_send --file sample.hl7 --port 6661 mirth.example.com
MSA|AA|234242|Message Received Successfully|


Usage: mllp_send [options] <server>

-h, --help show this help message and exit
-p PORT, --port=PORT port to connect to
-f FILE, --file=FILE read from FILE instead of stdin
-q, --quiet do not print status messages to stdout
--loose allow file to be a HL7-like object (\r\n instead of
\r). Can ONLY send 1 message. Requires --file option
(no stdin)


By default, mllp_send expects the FILE or stdin input to be a properly formatted HL7
message (carriage returns separating segments) wrapped in a MLLP stream

However, it is common, especially if the file has been manually edited in certain text
editors, that the ASCII control characters will be lost and the carriage returns will be
replaced with the platform's default line endings. In this case, mllp_send provides the
--loose option, which attempts to take something that "looks like HL7" and convert it into
a proper HL7 message. Currently the --loose option can only handle 1 HL7 message per file
(it causes mllp_send to assume the whole file is one HL7 message).
