(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
.list "o"
.le;XMODEM_AU is a revised version of Jim Belonis' XMODEM 5.60. I have
rewritten the user interface 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 compiler).

WHAT'S NEW ?
.list "o"
.le;When XMODEM_AU is executed, the following prompt is displayed:
.nofill
.b1
$ XMODEM
XMODEM>
.fill
.b1
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:
.b1
.NOFILL
SEND
RECEIVE
CRC
NOCRC
BINARY
TEXT
EXIT
HELP
SHOW
.B1
.FILL
Complete descriptions of these commands are available in the XMODEM_AU.HLP
file.
.le;XMODEM 5.60 would quit working after one action 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 error
message for incorrect syntax and will return the XMODEM> prompt after
every operation.

  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/
