Count me in on that one...unfortunately I haven't even got  ftpmail

Even Mini Office Pro? <g>

Unfortunately, HiSoft have recently stopped selling PCW  software,
and Arnor have stopped reading altogether (according  to this month's
PCW+) :-( You should be able to get hold of them  elsewhere (other
suppliers/second hand?)

will it still work?

EMU is an RSX, so it should work with anything, on-line or off. I've
tested it with COMM+, QTERM, ZMP and MAIL232; all of which work without
problems. Mini Office should also be OK.

Yes, I'm the one who informed 'PCW Plus' of this.

They are one and the same. TIN appends xs1 (XS4ALL's main Sun computer)
to the domain name, but all mail goes to the same box.

QTerm is a vt100 emulator; apparently it's quite good as it  stands,
but there is a version for the PCW which will allow  error-free use
of speeds like 9600 baud (depending on your  modem, of course). I
don't know of any ftp sites etc that have  it (ftp.demon.co.uk
possibly?); however I believe Paul Westlake  of PCW PD in the UK has

If ANSI emulation is all you need, you could try ANSI102.COM; I  
assume you're writing in the US, in which case I don't know  where
you could get hold of it; it's currently on several CP/M  boards in
the UK, which is expensive. It works with ordinary  comms programs
such as MEX and ZMP; it would probably work with  MAIL232 (although I
haven't tried it) and I doubt very much it  would work with Mini Office Pro.

While on the subject...does anyone out there have a list of the  
vt100 escape codes? I'm looking into the possibility of  rewriting
ANSI102.COM to recognise vt100 codes as well as ANSI  codes. Help?

There's lots of CP/M free/shareware around; there also appears  to be
a lot of CP/M bulletin boards in the US, which would carry  this sort
of thing. If you can, have a look in the CPMTECH echo  on Fidonet for
some phone numbers.

There's also lots of public domain and (I think) shareware  available
at the ftp site at oak.oakland.edu, in the directory  /pub/cpm.
Unfortunately I don't have ftp access yet so I don't  know what's there.

You might mean Z8E, which is a public domain Z80 debugger by  Rick
Surwilo. I don't know which C compiler you've got, but I've  heard
that the Hi-Tech CP/M C compiler (previously commercial,  now PD) is
available at oak.oakland.edu. I think there's also a  good
ex-commercial Pascal compiler (JRT Pascal?) and there's  lots of PD
compilers for other languages (Cobol, Forth, etc).
