The attached programs are totally free shareware. I currently use
them while transmitting/receiving data between DOS, UNIX/XENIX, and
MAINFRAME storage areas. These are great to use with Kermit.
Below is a brief description of each program. Note that I have com-
piled and tested each one in the following areas: UNIX/XENIX operating
system, System 5, release 3; DOS, Microsoft Version 5.1.

filecmpr.c : beats any file compressor I have seen in Unix. Compressing
is a little slow but decompression is quite fast.
I wish someone out there had the time to expand
this into an arc/zip kind of utility so we could
send archive files between DOS and UNIX.

chgxmitf.c : creates/uncreates a printable ASCII file from
any kind of input file. Use this to create good transmittable
files that Kermit and other utilities will not corrupt.

split_f.c : breaks up/puts back together large files for transmission.
Great if you are transmitting over a noisy line and
have a big file to transmit. See attached split_f.doc.


I have not given any usage info here since you can get that
by typing the executable name by itself. To compile in Unix:
just do a 'cc'. In DOS, set up environment flag DOS; example
cl -DDOS filecmpr.c with Microsoft; other compilers should have
no problems with these. I created chgxmitf.c from scratch, the
others were originally secured from DOS BBS's and modified to
work in UNIX/XENIX.

Have fun with these.
