(This is a revised version of the README.MEM file submitted by
Swanger to the Spring '87 VAX SIG. It provides a brief
description of XMODEM_AU, which is a modified version of Jim
Belonis' XMODEM. For a more complete description of the
program's operation, invoke it and enter the HELP command.)

INTRODUCTION

o XMODEM_AU is a revised version of Jim Belonis'
XMODEM 5.60. I have rewritten the user inter-
face to the program. All of the really good
communications routines are Jim's. XMODEM_AU
is written in VAX FORTRAN and works fine with
VMS 4.3 through 4.5. XMODEM_AU consists of
one executable image, XMODEM_AU.EXE. The
source file for this image is XMODEM_AU.FOR.
I have included both source and executable
files. I have also included a help file named
XMODEM_AU that should be included into the
System Help library. If you want to recreate
the executable file, simply compile and link
the program (you must have a FORTRAN com-
piler).


WHAT'S NEW ?

o When XMODEM_AU is executed, the following
prompt is displayed:

$ XMODEM
XMODEM>

XMODEM_AU is now waiting for you to enter a
command. Although compatibility with version
5.60 has been retained to a degree, several
new commands have been added. These commands
are:

SEND
RECEIVE
CRC
NOCRC
BINARY
TEXT
EXIT
HELP
SHOW

Complete descriptions of these commands are
available in the XMODEM_AU.HLP file.

o XMODEM 5.60 would quit working after one ac-
tion whether it was successful or not.
XMODEM_AU attempts to handle every situation,
successful or not. Although XMODEM_AU crashes
occasionally, it usually will give you an er-
ror message for incorrect syntax and will re-
turn the XMODEM> prompt after every operation.


COMMENTS

o The source code for XMODEM_AU has been reason-
ably well commented. If you have any ques-
tions, comments, or improvements, please feel
free to contact me.
