Last update: 17-Sep-92 benst

This is the unix version of BinkleyTerm-ST. It currently runs on
NeXT with NeXTSTEP 2.1 and on Sony workstations. Both are BSD types
of systems. To make this run on SysV systems is probably a lot of
work. This project has not been fully tested. I just run it as a
mailer for a point system, where it performs adequately. If you
make any changes to this code, please send me the diffs so that I
can incorporate them in future releases.

This version of BinkleyTerm is based on BinkleyTerm-ST V3.02a by
Steven Green. A previous release was based on V2.40, and is now
obsolete.

Copyright:

The changes from the original BinkleyTerm version are copyright
(c) 1992 by Ben Stuyts. You are free to do with these changes as
you like, provided that you give me credit. The original licensing
agreement of Bit Bucket Software still applies. As is common in
the unix environment, you should distribute this package including
full sources.

Known problems:

1. Not everything has been tested.

2. Janus mode doesn't work. Don't use it! ZedZap works fine.

3. There are some places where the program uses 100% of all available
cpu time. This is due to the Atari-ST heritage of the program,
where 'busy-waiting' is the common thing to do. I have tried to
remove this from the most common used code. If you want to change
this at more places, you might want to look at the wait_event()
function (bsd_com.c) which will prove useful for this.

4. Several keys in dumb terminal mode (CR, Backspace for example)
are not interpreted correctly.

5. Not all keys are implemented as they were not necessary for me.

Many thanks to the beta-testers for finding/fixing bugs:

Joop Koopman (2:281/202)(Point and bbs setup on NeXT)

Paul van der Zwan (2:281/202.2)(Point setup on NeXT)

Todo binkley:

V3.02a:

3. emsi protocol uses 100% cpu time
4. Incoming files / file requests; should permissions be rw for group?
