Article #134 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: ae454 Subject: basic BBS Date: Sun Jul 30 09:27:52 1989 I have a Program that auto answers now on th Xm301, Then I Know How to send Characters, but how would I let the person calling see what he is typing at an input? And Would I use Get #1 or Input #1 for String characters? Thanks if you can help. ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Thu Aug 20 09:54:05 1987 ** Use GET#1, then immediately follow it with PUT#1. (I'm assuming you OPENed one modem channel for two- way transfer.) That allows you to echo his words back to him AND TO PROCESS EACH CHARACTER AS HE SENDS IT! This last can be important for keeping files smaller when the caller deletes things, and for single-key responses. Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271 Thanks for asking.
