SMCOM.COM - Version 0.2á

A SMall COMmunications Utility Program

03/12/91


FREEWARE by 1991 by John Crouch




PURPOSE

This is a tiny communications program. Have you have ever found
yourself at a computer site (like doing some consulting or repair
work) and wished you could use the modem to call someone, or to test
out a COM port? I have, and I don't usually carry around Qmodem and
it's 700K of program and support files.

Along comes SMCOM. It won't impress you with features or functions.
It open a COM port and allows you to talk to the port, clear the
screen (ALT-C) and exit the program back to DOS (ALT-X). And it is
only about 10K.

It's not the greatest program in the world, but I hope it works for
you as it has for me.



DISCLAIMER

This program is released into the PUBLIC DOMAIN. It is free! I am
not trying to make a fast buck on this program. I think that Sysops
spend enough money on their systems and don't need one more person
with their hand out. These kinds of utilities can "nickle and dime"
a Sysop to death!

I MAKE NO CLAIM THAT THIS PROGRAM WILL WORK AT ALL. IF IT DOES
WORK, I DO NOT CLAIM THAT IT WILL NOT DAMAGE YOUR VALUED HARDWARE OR
SOFTWARE IN THE PROCESS. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
