Battery Warnings and Cautions
Do not discharge the battery using any device except for the Falcon. When the
battery is used in devices other than the Falcon, it may damage the battery or
reduce its life expectancy. If the device causes an abnormal current to flow, it may
WARNING cause the battery to become hot, explode or ignite and cause serious injury.
Lithium-Ion battery packs may get hot, explode or ignite and cause serious injury
if exposed to abusive conditions. Be sure to follow the safety warnings listed
below:
•
Do not place the battery pack in fire or heat.
•
Do not install the battery pack backwards so the polarity is reversed.
•
Do not connect the positive terminal and negative terminal of the battery pack
to each other with any metal object (such as wire).
•
Do not carry or store the battery pack together with metal objects.
•
Do not pierce the battery pack with nails, strike it with a hammer, step on it or
otherwise subject it to strong impacts or shocks.
•
Do not solder directly onto the battery pack.
•
Do not expose the battery pack to liquids, or allow the battery to get wet.

Falcon® 4400 Series with Windows® CE
Battery Warnings and Cautions
Always charge the battery at 32°–113°F (0°–45°C) temperature range.
CAUTION
If you remove the battery pack or it becomes completely discharged, there is a 30
minute window in which to insert a charged battery pack before the backup battery fails. If your backup battery completely discharges, the contents of the RAM
memory will be lost. If your back-up battery is less than fully charged, there is proportionally smaller window of time available.
Use only the authorized power supplies, battery pack, chargers, and docks supplied by your Datalogic Mobile reseller. The use of any other power supplies can
damage the Falcon and void your warranty. Refer to Appendix A for the correct
Power Supplies and Accessories.
Do not disassemble or modify the battery. The battery contains safety and protection devices, which, if damaged, may cause the battery to generate heat, explode
or ignite.
Do not place the battery in or near fire, on stoves or other high temperature locations. Do not place the battery in direct sunlight, or use or store the battery inside
unventilated areas such as cars in hot weather. Doing so may cause the battery to
generate heat, explode or ignite. Using the battery in this manner may also result
in a loss of performance and a shortened life expectancy.
Do not place the battery in microwave ovens, high-pressure containers or on
induction cookware.
Immediately discontinue use of the battery if, while using, charging or storing the
battery, the battery emits an unusual smell, feels hot, changes color or shape, or
appears abnormal in any other way.
Datalogic Mobile recommends annual replacement of rechargeable battery packs
to ensure maximum performance.

4. A File Save message showing the
image file name will appear,
unless that option has been previously deselected in the File settings (in that case, the file will
automatically save without
prompting). See "Image File" on
page 2-18, to change settings.
5. Tap Yes to save the image, or No
to discard it.
Image File
1. Specify where you want images to
be saved in the File Folder field. If
you do not select a folder, images
will be saved to the default folder
“\Images.” Use … (browse) to
browse to a different folder.
2. Use File Format to select the image
format you want. You can choose
between the following graphics
formats:
• TIFF (1-bit monochrome)
• TIFF (8-bit grayscale)
• JPEG (8-bit grayscale)
• BMP (1-bit monochrome)
• BMP (8-bit grayscale)
3. Check Confirm before Saving File to automatically get a File Save message when saving images (see Figure 2-12B). If unchecked, the file will
automatically save to the specified file folder (at the root of the Falcon’s drive) without prompting.
4. Check Exit after Image Capture to cause the Imaging Control Panel to

5. Enable Long Range Filter enhances pictures taken from very long distances (greater than 10 feet or 3 meters).
6. Enable Aimer Illumination turns on the aimer LEDs to provide more
light for an image capture.
Image Size
On the Size tab, modify the image property settings as desired. Both keyboard and
stylus input are supported.
1. Use the Width and Height controls
to adjust the image.
• Width can be as much as 640
pixels.
• Height can be as much as 480
pixels.
Reducing the height and width
results in cropping of the image to
the center.
2. Use Scale to scale the image. Scaling changes the x,y dimensions of the image. For example, scaling a
640 x 480 image to 50% results in an image size of 320 x 240. See
"Imaging Controls" on page F-32, for further information.
Reducing the scale of an image results in reduced image size, which decreases
the time needed to capture an image.
3. Rotate allows you to change the orientation of the image, in 90° increments.

Image Settings
1. JPEG Quality sets the desired quality when the JPEG image format
is selected. Selecting a higher
quality results in a higher quality
image, but a larger file.
2. Brightness allows you to set the
brightness level the imager will
use when taking images.
3. Edge Sharpness specifies how
much the imager will attempt to
sharpen edges in images it takes.
Selecting the highest position on
the slider gives the sharpest edges,
but also increases noise in the
image.
4. Gamma Correction measures the brightness of midtone values produced by the image. You can brighten or darken an image using
gamma correction. A higher gamma correction yields an overall
brighter image. The lower the setting, the darker the image. Move the
slider to change the amount of correction the imager applies when
taking images.
Sample Imager Settings
To obtain the best possible results, you can modify the settings to suit specific
conditions or purposes. Table 2-3 shows samples of recommended settings for

part of a configuration profile. When a profile is selected, its settings become
active. An administrator can define, edit, or delete up to 20 profiles in the Profile tab in SCU. Profile changes made are saved only when the Commit button
is pressed.
Figure 2-26 on page 2-41 is an example of a Profile tab. Here are the highlights:
•
Profile: Use to select the profile to be viewed or edited. If “ThirdParty-
Config” is selected then, after the device goes through a power cycle,
WZC is used for configuration of the radio.
•
Actions: Four actions are available to an administrator:
- Rename: Give the profile a new name, one that is not assigned to
another profile

AutoStart
The AutoStart program provides three functions:
•
Allows you to create a list of applications (with optional command
line arguments) to run automatically prior to loading CAB files.
•
Automatically reinstalls specified CAB files when the Falcon is Hard
Reset.
•
Allows you to create a list of applications (with optional command
line arguments) to run automatically after loading CAB files.
AutoStart launches each time the Falcon is rebooted. AutoStart first runs
PreAuto.ini (reference Table 3-2 for the location), executing each line
with the specified command line arguments. It will take into account any
AutoStart options at the begining of the line.
Upon a Cold Reset, AutoStart installs all the CAB files located in the
AutoStart CAB folder. If the AutoStart CAB folder does not exist, no CAB
files will be installed.

Installing CAB files
Copy any CAB files you want to install into the AutoStart CAB folder. These
CAB files will then be automatically installed in alphabetical order the next
time you start the device.
How AutoStart Uses Wceload
If you intend to create highly interactive installers, you should either install the CABs manually or
review the section on “Interactive CAB Install” in this chapter.
In certain environments, CAB files will be deleted after execution. To prevent the CAB file from
being deleted, write protect the file before copying the file onto the device.
CAUTION
CAB files are installed by AutoStart using the Wceload.exe application.
Table 3-3 on page 3-13 shows available command line options:
Table 3-3. AutoStart command line options
Option
/noui
/silent
Description
Specifies that you will not be prompted for any input during the installation. If
the CAB file is signed, any responses will automatically be answered ‘Yes.’ If
the CAB is unsigned, then any responses will be answered ‘No.’
Suppresses dialog boxes during the installation.
Please refer to the Microsoft documentation on your device for further details
on Wceload.exe.
Sample:
\Windows\Wceload.exe /delete 1 /noui /silent
“\FlashDisk\CAB\<cab file>”
Product Reference Guide
3-13
Software Applications
Interactive CAB Install
If the CAB installer requires user interaction that must be performed during
the AutoStart CAB installation process, you can specify a special file name to
disable the silent mode installation. If this mode is specified, the CAB file will
be installed with Wceload without any command line arguments specified.
An example of what AutoStart would execute is:
\Windows\Wceload.exe <cab file>
To force this mode of installation via AutoStart, rename the CAB file to
include a ‘_’ character before the “.cab” extension of the file.
Example:
“File.cab” should be renamed “File_.cab” to force AutoStart to not
install the CAB in silent mode. This specially-named CAB file should be
placed in the AutoStart folder with other CAB files intended for installation
on the next reboot.
Autostart.ini
Autoexec.ini, which uses AutoCE on some older models, has been deprecated. These files should
be renamed to Autostart.ini and reformatted as described in "AutoStart" on page 3-12.
In the following section, all references to AutoStart.ini also pertain to PreAuto.ini.
Autostart.ini and PreAuto.ini are text files that AutoStart will run
upon startup of the Falcon, and after any CAB files are installed. This file
should be placed in the AutoStart folder. AutoStart will run the
Autostart.ini file on each reboot of the device.
Line Formatting
Each line of the Autostart.ini can consist of Autostart options, an executable, and any command line arguments.
< Autostart option(s)> <full path to executable>
<command line arguments>
Sample:
- \windows\pword.exe \file.doc
Table 3-4 breaks down the sample Autostart.ini line.

Spaces must be placed between each component of the line in the
Autostart.ini.
If the executable path is in a folder that contains spaces in the name, quotes are
required to distinguish what the actual executable name is. The following is an
example of this:
“\Program Files\ScannerApp.exe” /run (valid)
\Program Files\ScannerApp.exe /run (invalid)
The second line is an invalid line because there is no way to distinguish the
executable from the argument.

page 2-39 for more information on SCU.
Windows Zero Config
The Falcon can optionally be set to use Windows Zero Config, if preferred.
Refer to Microsoft online help for further information.
SNMP
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is the standard protocol for
managing devices on a network. The Falcon Management Utility (FMU)
makes use of SNMP to send and receive configuration information to the Datalogic Mobile terminals. Since the networked terminals are constantly running
SNMP, this allows FMU to interface with the terminal at any time, without
requiring user intervention on the terminal.
Product Reference Guide
4-9
Networks, Communications, and Connections
With SNMP running on the terminal, other SNMP based network management tools such as HP Openview® and CastleRock SNMPpc® may also be
used to interface with the terminals. To support this capability, Datalogic
Mobile has released the Management Information Base (MIB) for the Datalogic Mobile Windows-based terminals. The MIB is used by the management
tools to allow them to better support the configuration values provided on the
terminals, such as scanner controls and terminal type information.
The MIB is available at www.mobile.datalogic.com.
For more information on SNMP, refer to SNMP Interface, or go to:

enumerate users in the local database.
Testing the Web Server
After you have created your user accounts and groups for the Web Server, you
can test the Web Server by launching the Web Server configuration page from
a host PC. This will demonstrate that your user has been granted administrative rights for the Web Server and therefore can access any virtual directory on
the Web Server.
To launch the Web Server configuration page from your host PC:
1. On the Falcon 44xx, verify that the Connected Network icon appears on
the taskbar. This icon indicates you are connected to the network.
2. Double-click the Network icon, and then select the IP Information tab to
obtain the Falcon’s IP address.
3. On the PC, launch Internet Explorer and type the following information in the address bar: http://<IP address from Falcon 44XX>/
Webadmin.

for this user in the Password box, and then click OK. The Network
Administration page appears.
Web Server Registry Settings
To gain access to a virtual path, a user must be authenticated using NTLM
authentication or Basic authentication. Specify the authentication level by setting the “a” value for each virtual path.
C-4
Falcon® 4400 Series with Windows® CE
Web Server Registry Settings
For more information on the registry settings and what each key represents,
see the Windows® CE SDK help documentation included with embedded
Visual C++ 4.0 SP2. The help file contains a wealth of information on this
topic.
Adding these values will create virtual root directories for the Basic and
NTLM-based authentication methods.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\HTTPD\VROOTS\/WebAdmin]
@="\\windows\\httpdadm.dll"
"a"=dword:0
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\HTTPD\VROOTS\/BasicOnly]
@="\\"
"a"=dword:1
"Basic"=dword:1
"NTLM"=dword:0
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\HTTPD\VROOTS\/NTLMOnly]

"NTLM"=dword:1
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\HTTPD\VROOTS\/BothAuth]
@="\\"
"a"=dword:1
"Basic"=dword:1
"NTLM"=dword:1
Setting the "a" value to zero (0) enables anonymous users to have access to all
files in the virtual directory. This potentially opens the device up to hackers. Setting this value to zero (0) is permissible for internal development and testing purposes. However, you should never ship a Web Server device with the "a" value set
CAUTION to zero (0) for any configuration page.
To set the password for the entire Web Server device for Basic authentication, you
can create a configuration application that runs on the device and calls the SetPassword function. Setting the password programmatically through SetPassword
is the equivalent of the device password setting that you add in Control Panel.

Configuring the Web Server
Creating and Using an ISAPI Service
Developers can create an ISAPI service written in eVC++ to access the APIs
available on the Terminal. The two sample .dlls below demonstrate setting and
getting a few of the configurable items available in the Falcon 44xx SDK.
Setting Configuration Items
The following example shows how to set the Code 39 minimum label length
to 10 characters:
1. Create a virtual directory under the root called SetSym and set the
Default registry entry to SetSym.dll while making sure the full
path is included.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\HTTPD\VROOTS\/SetSym]
@="\\windows\\SetSym.dll"
2. Restart the Web Server as described on page C-2.
3. Enter the following information into Internet Explorer on the Terminal or host PC:
http://<ip address of Terminal>/SetSym?CD39MIN&10
Getting Configuration Items
The following example demonstrates how to get all the settings for Code 39:
1. Create a virtual directory under the root called GetSym and set the
Default registry entry to GetSym.dll while making sure the full path is
included.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMM\HTTPD\VROOTS\/GetSym]
@="\\windows\\GetSym.dll"
2. Restart the Web Server as described in the first section. (C-2)
3. Enter the following information into the Internet Explorer on the
Terminal or desktop computer:
http://<ip address of Terminal>/GetSym?C39
These two samples are only the beginning of what can be accomplished with
the Web Server. Please note that ISAPI is currently the only method of serverside method invocation. Please consult the Help file associated with the SDK
and eVC++ for more information on ISAPI and Web Server features.

Appendix D
SNMP Interface
Overview
SNMP Concepts
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a standardized protocol for
network management services using a client/server model. The network management program (client) issues queries and commands to the remote device
(agent/server). The protocol itself defines a number of variable types and structures, and the rules for using them for data transfer. Using these variable types
and rules, there are a number of standard variables that are supported by all
SNMP agents. These standards include network addressing (IP address, subnet mask, etc.), and network statistics (total packets, bad packets, etc.).
FMU uses Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to perform many
of its functions. When the Terminal Configuration or Terminal Report function is selected, SNMP is used to query the Terminal for its current Configuration settings, as well as current status information such as battery status and
memory usage. In the same function, SNMP is used to update Terminal Configuration settings when directed to. SNMP is also used by the FMU Servers
to perform the automated Group Configuration update. The Server issues
SNMP queries to discover the current Terminal Configuration, then uses
SNMP commands to update any Configuration settings that need it.
MIB Files
A Management Information Base (MIB) is a file that defines a set of SNMP
variables, their types and usage. There are a number of standard MIBs available, depending on the information being managed.
Product Reference Guide
D-1
SNMP Interface
Datalogic MIBs
Beyond the standard values, SNMP allows manufacturers to define their own
private MIBs. For example, Datalogic has been assigned an MIB by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority that allows Datalogic to define SNMP values
relating specifically to devices that we manufacture. Within the Datalogic
MIB, several categories of values have been defined including scanner Configurations, Terminal power Configurations and Terminal network parameters.
The format of an MIB follows rules laid out in the appropriate standards,
allowing the manufacturers of network management tools such as HP OpenView and CastleRock SNMPc to make use of the MIBs developed by manufacturers. So by following the procedures used by the management tool, the
MIB can be processed by the tool allowing the proper display of SNMP values
retrieved from the agent.
For example, if the Datalogic MIB is loaded into OpenView, the administrator
can then view all of the values defined by Datalogic using the names assigned
by Datalogic, as well as a brief explanation of what each value represents. This
will also allow the administrator to update most values, and provides range
checking information for the tool to take advantage of. The current Datalogic
MIB can be found on the Datalogic Mobile website in the Downloads area.

Appendix F
Programming Parameters
Overview
This section contains information about programmable settings for the Falcon
4400 Windows Mobile Falcon. Use the Falcon Management Utility (FMU),
the Decoding Control Panel applet, the Imaging or OCR Control Panel
applets, or the bar codes provided in Appendix G to program the Falcon.
Table F-2 starting on page F-3 provides the following information:
•
Code Parameter is the “human” name for the programming option.
•
I.D. # is the “decoder” name for the programming option. For example,
to set a Code 39 minimum label length, use I.D. 0120. Programming I.D. numbers given in this appendix can be used with all programming methods.
•
On/Off is a toggle. 1 turns the parameter on, and 0 turns it off.
•
Acceptable Input gives the settings or range of settings for each code
parameter.
•
Defaults indicates how the parameter is set when the predefined
default FF39, FF3A, or FF3B is selected.
• Minimum (FF39) turns every on/off parameter off and sets all minimum and Maximum Label Lengths to the lowest values.
• Maximum (FF3A) turns every on/off parameter on, sets all Minimum Label Lengths to the lowest values, and sets all Maximum
Label Lengths to the highest values. Use this default for troubleshooting; it provides the best settings for reading an unknown bar
code symbology and can identify the symbology of scanned bar
codes.
• Factory (FF3B) is the factory setting installed on the Falcon. This
default set will work for most applications. To reset the Falcon to
the original defaults, scan the Factory bar code on page G-3.
•
Scanner Type shows, with a checkmark, which modules support the
specified parameter.

OCR Configuration
OCR Configuration
OCR configuration is performed with a combination of PDT parameters and
registry settings. For purposes of configuration, OCR is considered one symbology. Only one font can be active at a time.
OCR Data Output
OCR data is outputted to the system as though it were bar code data. Characters of the OCR fonts are outputted as printed. Only A-Z, 0-9 are supported.
The maximum number of OCR rows is three. The maximum number of characters per row is 16. This means that the overall maximum number of OCR
characters is 48 characters.
Check digits are not outputted with OCR data. See "OCR Check Characters"
starting on page F-42 for more information.
OCR Templates
You can specify a null-terminated string that defines the length and content of
OCR strings that can be read. This string can be used to specify a single template or multiple templates that are concatenated together. You can also stipulate two template variables that specify a configurable class of characters.
By default, a single template is defined that allows for any 8-digit OCR string
to be read.
Product Reference Guide
F-37
Programming Parameters
The list box displays templates, with
each list item displayed as a one-line
string.
•
Use the Char Type spin box to
select allowable characters.
•
Use the Number to set length.
•
Select/deselect the Check Digit
checkbox.
•
Tap Insert to add a new list
item that conforms to the three
controls above this button.
•
Tap Delete to remove the
selected item from the list box.
•
Tap Custom to add a template
that does not match a standard. See Table F-7 on page F-39.
Printable template characters (0x20 – 0x7E) are represented by themselves,
and template control characters are printed according to template characters
shown in Table F-7 on page F-39.
Template separator characters are not printed; templates are displayed as separate list items.
Building a Single Template
A template allows you to specify the format of an OCR string that can be read.
The imager will only decode OCR strings that match a specified template.
This template can be made up of any combination of characters that are specified in Table F-7. The “Character” column shows what is entered into Custom
to make a custom template. The one exception is the check digit character
(0x03). See "OCR Check Characters" starting on page F-42 for more information about OCR check digit.

41 0D 42 0D 43
A string with three rows, the first being “A”, the
second being “B”, and the last being “C”.
Multiple Templates
Multiple templates can be created by concatenating templates together. The \R
character is used to concatenate templates. When this character is present it
signifies that the next characters specify a new template. Logically the \R character is an OR statement meaning that if an OCR string matches any of the
specified templates it will be read. Any number of templates can be concatenated as long as the total number of template characters is no greater than 128.

a template only characters in the associated CCC string will be allowed in the
specified character position. The variable \G is associated with custom character class 1 (CCC1) and the variable \H is associated with custom character
class 2 (CCC2). Table F-11 gives some examples of how CCCs are used. The
CCC strings must specify at least one character for the associated variable to be
used in a template.

Sample
Description
A string of 6 characters where each
character is either “A” or “B”.
A string starting with 3 characters that
can be any combination of “A” and
“B”, and ending with 3 characters that
can be any combination of “C”, “B”,
“E”, “1”, or “2”.
N/A
Error, CCC2 not defined.
A string starting with “1” or “2”, followed by “M”, followed by either “B”,
“D”, “A”, or “1”, followed by any character.
OCR Check Characters
OCR can be configured to use either a Modulo 10 or Modulo 36 check digits
using the PDT parameters. A check digit is used to verify the contents of a bar
code by calculating the total of the data. By default, OCR is configured to use
Modulo 10 check digits. This setting is global to all check digits. The following must be true for the placement of a check digit to be considered valid:
F-42
•
The check digit must be put at the end of a row.
•
There can be no more than 1 check character in a row.
•
Rows with check digits can only have the characters 0-9 and A-Z.

OCR Configuration
Modulo 10 Check Digit
Modulo 10 allows you to set a check digit for the numbers 0 through 9, with
values corresponding to the numbers.
The general formula for calculating a Modulo 10 check digit is as follows:
(dn + . . . + d3 + d2 + d1 + d0) modulo 10 = 0
Modulo 10 Example
1212121212
(1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + 1 + 2 + x) modulo 10 = 0
(15 + x) modulo 10 = 0
(15 + 5) modulo 10 = 0
x = 5, so the check digit would be 5.
The final string including the check digit would be 12121212125.
Modulo 36
Modulo 36 allows you to set a check digit for the characters 0 - 9 and A -Z.
The numbers correspond to the values just as in Modulo 10 and the values for
alphabetic characters start at 10 for A and end with Z at 35, as shown in
Table F-12.

(10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 1 + 2 + 3 + x) modulo 36 = 0
(52 + x) modulo 36 = 0
(52 + 20) modulo 36 = 0
x = 20, so using the value from Table F-12, the check digit would be K. The
final string including the check digit would be ABCD123K.

Glossary
Many definitions for this Glossary were taken directly from the Microsoft Developer’s Network
website at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp.
1D bar code
A traditional linear bar code. The code itself contains no information about the item to
which it is assigned but represents a string of identifying numbers or letters.
2D bar code
Two-dimensional (2D) bar codes permit the encoding of information about an item in addition to an identifying code. Two axes, or directions, are used for recording and reading the
codes and the bar size is reduced, increasing the space available for data.
4-way rocker key
Refer to navigation key.
active notification
The state of a user notification from the time the user is notified until the user handles the
event.
active window
The window in which a user is currently working or directing input. An active window is typically on top of the Z order and is distinguished by the color of its title bar.
ActiveSync
Microsoft Windows Communication application that synchronizes a Windows CE device
with a Microsoft Windows-based host PC. ActiveSync can use RS-232, IrDA, USB, and
Wireless networks.
AP
Access Point used for RF applications.
ASCII
American Standard Code for Information Interchange; a code for information exchange
between computers made by different companies; a string of 7 binary digits represents
each character; used in most microcomputers. Any member of the standard code for representing characters by binary numbers. Refer to Table F-13 on page F-44.
AutoCAB
The AutoCAB program allows the Falcon to automatically reinstall selected applications
when the terminal is cold booted. When the Falcon is rebooted, the AutoCAB program runs
automatically and determines if it is a warm or cold boot.
AutoCE
AutoCE allows the user to create a list of applications to run when the Falcon is rebooted.
Each application may be designated to run only on a cold boot, or on both warm and cold
boots. The applications run sequentially, allowing interdependencies to be handled.
Batch units
Batch Falcon units are synchronized and updated using Microsoft ActiveSync software and
a dock for communication with the host PC.

A tool to track all loaded device drivers and their interfaces. It issues notification of the
appearance, disappearance of device interfaces, loads and tracks drivers by reading and
writing registry values, and unloads drivers when their devices are no longer needed.
A registry key on a Windows CE device that a desktop computer uses to identify the
device when it is connected. The key defines values for synchronization, file conversions,
device partnership and backup and restore information, which enable multiple Windows CE devices to connect to the same desktop computer. A device partnership is created the first time you connect a Windows CE device to a host PC.

ease of ordering from any source: local bookstore, online book dealers, or directly from the
publisher. The ISBN number is usually printed on the back cover of a book near the bar
code, but can also appear within the book.
ISSN
International Standard Serial Number. An ISSN consists of eight digits comprising two
groups of four digits each, separated by a hyphen. The eighth digit is a check digit used as
a computer validity check; it consists of a number between 0 and 9 or an uppercase X (for
