Contents of the OH!.DOC file


a public domain SysOps' utility by Michael Conley.

Version 1.5, compiled 11/24/91


OH! places your modem OFF HOOK or ON HOOK depending on the command line
switches. Unlike many similar programs, OH! allows you to send these
modem commands to ANY port address and any IRQ (1 through 7), as well
as offerint simple default settings

OH! transmits its commands at 1200 baud, which should be compatible
with virtually any current modem. It uses the HAYES-compatible commands

ATH1 - places the modem off-hook
ATH0 - places the modem on-hook


OH! can be run from a batch file or directly from the command line.

Calling syntax: OH! [X]

PORT may be any one of the following formats:

COM1 through COM4 - see defaults below
H3F8 - any HEX address (preceded by an H)
1016 - any DECIMAL address.

IRQ (only required if you don't use the defaults - see below)

I3 -- any valid COM IRQ (1 - 7)

X (optional) -- restores ON HOOK condition

OH! default combinations are: NAME HEX ADDR IRQ
COM1 H3F8 4
COM2 H2F8 3
COM3 H3E8 5
COM4 H2E8 7

OH!is public domain. I don't seek or accept any donations for this or
any of my other Wildcat! utility programs, including TODAYBBS, FLOP, MSTAT,
USTAT, and others.

I welcome suggestions, and will try to help (no guarantees) if there are

You may contact me at The Charlatan's Cabin BBS (213) 654-7337. Mention
your Wildcat! registration number in the comment and you'll be upgraded to
membership without the usually required registration by mail.

You may also leave a message via CompuServe (70250,220).

Please, NO VOICE CALLS. This isn't meant to be unfriendly, but with
the price of public domain software these days ... I just can't afford
to be "on call." I WILL respond to your questions via my BBS or CompuServe,
or via the Mustang Software registered SysOp BBS.
