YAT Yet Another Terminal. MSX TCP/IP UNAPI Terminal with YMODEM



YAT Yet Another Terminal. MSX TCP/IP UNAPI Terminal with YMODEM.

YAT is another telnet program for MSX. There are a lot of great terminal/telnet/ communication programs in MSX. RS232 like COMS6, ERIX or BaDCaT Wifi Modem and TCP/IP UNAPI like Ducasp Telnet or Konamiman's simplified terminal TCPCON.

Why a new one? Because there is no terminal for TCP/IP UNAPI supporting YMODEM upload protocol. In other words: You can't upload files to Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) or other machines using Ymodem (XModem Checksum / CRC) protocol.

Why do you need a terminal/telnet with full YModem support? Why not? :)

My main goal is returning to my BBS/Fidonet activities. I mean, I would like to read / write / create echomail and netmail as I used to do 20 years ago. It sounds very sad but today with the new and great communication cartridge/boards (GR8NET, DENYUNET, OBSONET, ...) we can't upload QWK mail to any BBS.

YAT is a real raw terminal. This means it's not a fast / colorful terminal. And YAT does not support ANSI. No menus, no online-help. The aim is upload/download files to/from BBS systems.

So if you want to enjoy ANSI Art you are in the wrong place. Neither if you want to use YAT as online-terminal to interact, read or write messages.

If you want to deep into YAT please read DOC/YAT.TXT
