1. What is Anonymous FTP Emcee?
=======================================================
Emcee is an interface that brings all of FTP's
resources, including Archie and Whatis, into one
comfortable GUI package. All normal FTP processes are
automated including listing directories and viewing,
uploading and downloading files, as well as Archie
searches. Using what we call CHaiN, you're able to
perform these functions by moving the cursor to the
name of the file or directory to list and pressing
(enter). CHaiN captures the word, where you're able to
instantly use it for an FTP command. Emcee keeps all
directories and files listed in memory until you logoff
the site. Completely automated traveling across FTP
sites is a simple two/three-keystroke process.
Hypertext-encoded documents are translated and
all links referring to FTP sites, directories and files
are highlighted. Archie/Whatis searches are specially
formatted, allowing instant access to finds when the
search has completed.

Emcee is shareware ($12) and may be distributed
anywhere without the prior consent of its author.


2. Requirements
=======================================================
Emcee is not a TCP/IP stack, but rather a DOS shell for
use when you've connected via modem to an Internet
provider. You must have a flat dial-up "shell
account" featuring a prompt where the "ftp" command can
be issued. Lack of VT-100 codes is good. The dial-up
provider can be from a BBS, online service or any type of
dial-up network connection besides SLIP or PPP.
Windows is absolutely not required. Linux and TBBS
systems featuring Inet access have been tested
extensively, thus, most, if not all Unix-based shell
accounts should work fine. Emcee requires a few megs
of harddrive space (for temporarily keeping
directories), and around 300K available memory. A VGA
or compatible monitor is essential. Any type of
IBM-compatible CPU from 286 on up will do.


3. Installation
=======================================================
You'll need to know a few things first...

* the Host Prompt (the prompt from which ftp and
telnet outbound commands can be successfully issued.)

* The command for listing directories in FTP (usually
"dir")

* The command for viewing files in FTP (sometimes
"read". If not available, leave blank, and Emcee will
simulate it for you.)


When you have this information, run SETUP. Fill in the
blanks and SAVE/Exit. This is normally a quick and
painless process if you know the above information.
Emcee's documentation should clear up any misunderstood
Setup options. (EMCEE.DOC)

The final process is to call your provider like you
normally do with your terminal program and
position the screen to the Host Prompt (where you can
issue ftp/telnet commands). Shell or exit to DOS
without disturbing your connection, change to Emcee's
directory and type "emcee" to execute.

If something fails, you'll be notified right away.
Recheck all the commands and make sure that the Host
Prompt is accurate.
