If “deprecated” status is applied to an API, it indicates that the API should be avoided when interfacing via PC*MILER|Connect. ALK Technologies generally deprecates an API when a better alternative has been developed, in order to encourage users to work with the newer functionality. Although deprecated APIs may remain in the software, their use can produce warning messages or non-optimal results.  


A deprecated API may be removed from the product in the future.
