Subject: SENDING TO XM301 MODEM
Date: Sun Jul 30 09:32:58 1989


I WANTED TO KNOW HOW TO SEND LETTERS LIKE "G" WHICH WOULD MAKE
THE XM301 GOIN AUTOANSWER MODE.I CAN OPEN THE PORT WITH NO
PROBLEM AND I CAN TELL THAT IT IS OPENED BECAUSE WHEN I OPEN IT
THE MODEM MAKES A SOUND THAT COMES OUT ON THE T.V. WHICH I CAN
HEAR WHEN I USE 1030 EXPRESS.I WAS TOLD TO USE XIO COMMANDS
BUT THE GUY DIDN'T KNOW WHICH ONES TO USE,AND HE TOLD ME TO
CALL PHANTOM THEATRE I CANT GET A CONNECTION TO IT!
IF YOU CAN HELP THIS WOULD VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY MUCH
APPRITIATED!!!
THANKS,
  RYAN WILKINS(AE501)

        First, don't worry about what
you are sending after you are on line;
the modem probably ignores command
characters unless dis-connected.  
        Package programs, such as 
Express, are designed to avoid such
problems if they exist at all.
        Second, if you are doing your
own modem programming, you need to 
refer to an Atari Basic reference
manual (Sams puts out a very good one)--or to "De Re Atari" for machine 
language (available from some mail
order houses).  The XIO commands are
strictly BASIC; machine language is 
much trickier.
        Finally, don't depsair if any
given BBS won't respond with your XM301
-- it works ONLY at 300 baud, which 
some boards now refuse to allow.  If 
you can't get on TAP (228-7335) or 
FREE-NET (368-3888 for those who are 
using a friend's autodial), leave me a
personal message at aa271.
        Good luck.
                        Your Co-sysop

         Thanks for asking.
