To interface with my Los Angeles FreeNet (LAFN) account,
using their menuing system, I've written a set MS-DOS Kermit
Scripts to emulate the presence of a Kermit
server at the other end my connection with the Freenet BBS/eMail
account. Part of the purpose is to provide a command line
interface, opposed to the normal menu interface they provide,
and also to provide a mechanism for writing scripts to interface
with LAFN that will be portable across operating systems I might use.
(LAFN has decided they will no longer make changes to the BBS side of
I have to uniformly prefix the names of most of the scripts with an
arbitrarily chosen character (I've chosen 'f' for FreeNet), to
distinguish them from the already existing Kermit commands.
For examples, fremote, fsend, fget, fmail, instead of remote, send, get,
My question is, is there any way to get these scripts to override the
normal Kermit commands, so there would no longer be any need to use
the prefixing character?
While still under developement, I'm past the main hump on this project,
and would be glad to show these to any one interested, either for their
own use, or to critique them.
TIA & Regards,
