Re: Terminal Emulators



Clive,

Try HyperTerminal, which is standard on Win 95/98.  It's a pretty poor
excuse for a terminal program, but at least it will do what you need.
You'll find it under Start Button-Programs-Accessories-Hyperterminal.

It is pretty easy to write a comm program in Visual Basic using the MSComm
library.

Hope this helps.
