Methinks this is miscommunication over a missing word.
If Rob's question is referring to *terminal* emulators for
Windows95 then it all makes sense. Doubleview and Ice.Ten are
terminal emulators, and host-print is a desirable feature of
Part of the answer depends on the method of communications. Some
of the best emulators are designed for Internet use, and require
a TCP/IP link to the host. Others which have weaker emulation
have better dialing capabilities (most software bundled with
modems fit this category).
The emulator market is quite crowded these days. In addition to the
ones mentioned above, there's FacetWin, Anzio, Kermit95 and SCO's
own product, TermVision. I know there are even more.
Most comparisons I've seen like the speed of Anzio, and a Lite
version is downloadable (http://www.teleport.com/~rsi/top.html).
