Article #49 (419 is last): Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.questions From: ag717 Subject: SX212 Revisited! Date: Sun Jul 30 09:04:24 1989 I'm sorry that I have not made myself clear the first time. Let me try again. I understand that SX-Express (or ANY Express program) is not designed to do the things that I want it to do. I also understand that with proper doc- umentation I could write either: 1) A modem program that works with the very limited handler that I do have . . . or . . . 2) A SX-Handler that allows me to use the term programs that I have and liked with my old 300 baud modem. My problem is two-fold. 1) I have no technical documentation on the SX-Companion handler that I am useing, so I cannot get it to do anything other than execute SX-Express. I cannot even get to DOS or BASIC after loading it!!!! 2) I have no technical documentation on the modem so that I can write my own handler for it. Typical to Atari, the owner's manual that I received barely tells me how to turn the modem on. Fortunatly, I have worked with Hayes modems, and as far as command-set goes, the SX212 seems to be 100% compatable (right down to the S-Registers!). So I repeat my question! Does anyone either have a term program that works on the SX212 and supports the type of options I want, or a handler for the SX212 that allows me to use my old programs like HomePack and VT10^2. A distant third would be the doc- umentation that I have said that I cannot get. Ron Boswell (ag717) P.S. If you look carefully, your pre- vious answer did not say ANYTHING that my previous question did not. If you cannot help me youself, maybe you can suggest as to who can? ** Answered by DOUG WOKOUN (aa384) on Wed Sep 28 17:04:47 1988 ** Maybe I should be a little clearer also: I don't know... Suggestion: ----------- If you are an ML wizard, disassemble the code and try to figure it out. I don't know who wrote the handler, but you could write them a letter and ask them for some information.
