AT.EXE allows users to send commands to the modems connected to COM1: or
COM2: from the DOS command prompt, or from batch files.
AT.EXE is written with Turbo Pascal 5.0 using communication routines
from Prokit, (c) Samuel Smith.
HOW IT WORKS
To send a command to the modem, the user runs AT.EXE by typing AT at the
DOS command prompt followed by the command to be sent to the modem, and
the port the modem is connected to.
The default port is COM1, so if your modem is attached to COM1 then you
don't need to specify a port.
If your modem is connected to COM2 then you will always need to follow
the command to be sent with the number 2.
AT H1 (Take modem connected to COM1 off the hook)
AT H1M0 2 (Take modem connected to COM2 off hook and turn-off
AT M1DT18183523620 (Tell modem connected to COM1 to dial
AT Z 2 (Perform a reset on the modem connected to COM2)
I wrote this as a utility to take my modem off the hook during BBS mail
runs so that callers wouldn't ring the line during the event. I'm sure
there are other uses for it, and would be interested in hearing from
users who find new ways to use this program.
The latest version of this program along with other software I have
written are always available for download by first time callers to my
BBS, The Ledge PCBoard, 818-352-3620 (1440-HST). First time callers may
download my programs on the first call when they use the "SUPPORT DOOR"
which can be found by typing the word OPEN at the main menu.
