If you do not agree with this warrenty, please erase this program from your

Preface:

Professional Communications Driver v1.0 is a program that is designed to help
you write bulletin board software. It works with any IBM or compatible with
128k and a Hayes modem of 300, 1200, or 2400 baud. Hayes Comaptible modems
should work, but they have not been tested.

v1.5 Note:

This is the completed version of the PCD program. Future enhancements should
be out VERY soon. I hope you enjoy the program, and please report any bugs
you find to (513)821-6543 or GEmail to A.BENZAKEIN. I hope you find the
program of valuable.

Current Features:

+ Answers Modem and then ends and runs your BBS program.
+ Answers Modem and then ends and runs your BBS program.
+ Does all auto baud detect and switching internally before your BBS
program is run.
+ Traps users from being able to break into your DOS
+ Hangs up modem when the BBS is finished running.
+ Eliminates the need to issue any modem commands inside of your
BBS program, making it VERY easy to write your own BBS.

Running the program:

At the A, B, C, or D prompt, type the following: (Drive C used as an example)

C>COPY CON CONFIG.PCD
{put your communications port here, without the "{"'s}
{put the max. baud rate here, 300, 1200, or 2400, without the "{"'s}
^Z {Press control Z... The ^ stands for the control key}

Now you are ready to edit the batch file called PCD.BAT. Get out your text
editor or (as a last resort) EDLIN and edit the file. Please note that you
MUST make the file a standard ASCII text file. WordStar and Symphony file
formats are incomaptible.

PCD.BAT:

pcdmain
bbs <-- Substitute this value with the name of your BBS file. It must be
an executable file.
bye
pcd


Now you are ready to run your BBS.





Programming Tips for BBS Authors:

In BASIC, you need to read from a file on the default directory that is called
PCD.TMP and contains on line #1 the baud rate that the person is communicating
at. Lets assume you get 1200. Then you would...

OPEN "COMx:1200,N,8,1" as #1

Now you are ready to make your BBS!
