The HL7 Snip program acts just like the reporting utility within the HL7 Browser, except it runs on the command-line. The output is similar to what is produced by the Browser as well. The advantage is because it is line oriented you can process much larger sets of data than the memory limited browser can do.
At my work, this is the most popular of the HL7 utilities that I’ve written. To run this one you may want to setup a shell script (or batch file) to call “java -jar Hl7Snip.jar”, or remember to type that each time you want to run it. If you run that command without any options it will show you the syntax for using it.
