The world's most portable communications software, C-Kermit runs on computers ranging from desktop PCs to colossal supercomputers as a serial and modem communications package as well as a TCP/IP network client and server. It offers automatic dialing, terminal sessions, fast and reliable file transfer, a powerful script programming language, and international character-set translation - all in a consistent, cross-platform manner. "Using C-Kermit: Communication Software, Second Edition" is the new and definitive reference for C-Kermit 6.0, expanded and updated to describe fully all of its new features with brand-new tutorials on today's high-speed modems and how to get the most out of them. Some noteworthy features of this reference are: the most sophisticated discussion of modems, telephones numbers, dialing directories, and dialing available anywhere; new techniques for achieving faster and faster file transfer; a new chapter on external protocols such as XMODEM, YMODEM, and ZMODEM; expanded coverage of TCP/IP, X.2
5, DECnet, NETBIOS, and other networks; automatic client/server features; support for many new platforms - most notably Windows 95, Windows NT, and Stratus VOS; support for many new character sets; and, massive improvements in the power and usability of the script language. Like the first edition, the second edition of "Using C-Kermit" includes complete reference material: character tables, tables of escape sequences, an 'acronym decoder', an excellent index, and an extensive bibliography. Frank da Cruz is manager of Communications Software Development at Columbia University. He was the leader of the group that invented the Kermit file transfer protocol and wrote the first Kermit programs. He is the author of "Kermit, A File Transfer Protocol", published by Digital Press. Christine M. Gianone is manager of the Kermit Project at Columbia University. She was a major contributor to the design of the Kermit file transfer protocol and to the design of MS-DOS Kermit and C-Kermit. She is the author of "Using MS-DOS Kermit", published by Digital Press.
